Tiger cub run over near Tadoba reserve



The Times of India, New Delhi, 24th April, 2015

 

15 months old female tiger cub was run over by a speeding vehicle on the outskirts of Chandrapur, close to the Tadoba Andhari Tiger reserve in Maharashtra, reports Mazhar Ali.

 

 The carcass was semi decomposed, indicating the accident occurred some three days ago.

 

This is the fourth instance in five months of a carnivore being run over in Chandrapur where the  Junona-Pombhurna road cuts through the forests.

 

Forest officials found the carcass 30 metres in the foliage along the roadside in junona range where the cub managed to drag itself despite suffering multiple injuries, including a fractured limb.
