Janardhana Reddy adopts tiger cubs, elephant calf

Mining baron Gali Janardhana Reddy on Thursday adopted three three-month-old tiger cubs and a six-month-old male elephant calf at Bannerghatta Biological Park.

BBP executive director Santosh Kumar told DH that Reddy will spend Rs 3 lakh for the care of the three cubs and Rs 1.75 lakh for the elephant calf. He was given a certificate for it too.

The adoption is for a year, where the one who adopts the animals is informed about the health of the animals. The adoption is tax free.
