The ambitious tiger re-introduction in Satricosia's Satishosia Tiger Reserve (STR) has been put on the wait following the death of the tiger, which was located from Kana Tiger Reserve of Madhya Pradesh.
"We received information about tiger mortality around 13:00 on Wednesday, and until 10 am, the tiger was alive and his movement was recorded through the radio collar glued around his neck." Carcass was traced within 5 km of the STR core area. For now, the Tigers Project has been re-placed on hold, "said Sandeep Trifty, chief executive of the Forest (Wildlife), on Thursday afternoon.
Tiger MB-2 as it is called Kanha is found dead in Satkosia on Wednesday.
Referring to the tiger's death, Mr. Trifty said, "According to the carcass investigation, there was a deep injury of five-day back injury and anxiety in the dorsal neck of the tiger, which may be the cause of death."
The site was not disturbed according to the protocol of the National Authority for the Conservation of Tigers. Thus, the exact cause of mortality and prevalence time will become known after post-mortem conduct, he said.
According to PCCF (Wildlife), a team of government veterinarians, a representative of NTCA and others were created to administer the post-mortem in accordance with NTCA's normal operating procedure. Removal of the carcass by fire will be performed in the presence of a veterinary team and more.
Ramasamy P., a provincial forest officer of the Satkosia Wildlife Division, was appointed as deputy investor to investigate the matter and initiate another course of action.
Satkosia spreading along the ravine over the Mahanadi River in Odisha was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1976. The area was declared Satkosia Tiger Reserve in 2007, consisting of two adjacent wildlife sanctuary – the Satkosia Volcano and the Baisipalli Temple. The reserve is spread out over four provinces such as Angul, Katak, Niagara and Bud.
STR once boasted having over 10 tigers. The Odyssey government has developed a re-tiger program, in which the large cat population has swelled for several reasons, including anthropogenic disorders and poor prey.
"On ere 18-19 crore was spent on progamme tiger recovery.The fund's imports will be set at 60:40. The center will bear 60% of the total expenditure while the state's contribution will be 40%," Mr. Trifty said.
According to the NTCA-approved project, three pairs of tigers were supposed to be located in Madhya Pradesh. The three-year-old MB-2 was transferred to Satkissia on June 21. It was the first ever interstate tiger translocation in India.
Then, Sandari, Tigra, was located from Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve of Madhya Pradesh. Following two cases of alleged human being by Sondri, the villagers living in and around Sicusia were angry.
Furthermore, the tigress used to roam into humans over and over again which became unbearable for the wildlife department of the state forest department to allow Sundary to turn around freely. It was decided to return the tigress. The animal was found successfully in the first week of the month. Since then they have kept him in a special penitentiary set up within Sattakosia. The fate of the Tigress is not known as NTCA and the state government appreciates the advantages of the shortcomings of the transfer of Sandari from Satkosia.
