2 tiger cubs found dead in Ranthambore


The bodies of the 15-18 months old cubs were discovered by a forest party early on Sunday in the Paleda area of the national park.

According to a census conducted by the forest department in May 2009, there were 40 tigers left in and around Ranthambore National Park and Sawai Madhopur Wildlife Sanctuary.

The census conducted in the core division from April 30 to May 10, last year, revealed there were 14 males, 16 females and 10 cubs.

Around 175 km from here, Ranthambore National Park, which covers an area of around 400 sq km, is one of the finest tiger reserves in the country. The park’s abandoned fortress, lakes and above all its tigers have made it one of the most filmed wildlife reserves in the world.

 The park is also home to animals like the jackal, mongoose, sloth bear and leopard.
