A total of 33 spotted deer were found dead under Ghorela ward in the Kanha Tiger Reserve since last week, forest officials said on Friday.
Kanha Tiger Reserve's veterinary surgeon Sandeep Agrawal said 29 spotted deers were found dead between Jan 4-10 and four were found today in the Ghorela ward under the Mukki forest area.
The preliminary cause of their death appears to be malnutrition, infection and severe cold, but the exact reason will be known only after a postmortem and viscera report.
The reserve management has enhanced measures to monitor the health and security of the wild animals.
The viscera has been sent to the Jabalpur-based Veterinary College laboratory for testing.
