Tigress found dead in TATR

A young tigress pregnant with four cubs was found dead inside Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve Saturday.

This is the 10th tiger death this year in TATR and surrounding areas and second inside TATR.

"The tigress was found dead around 7 am by a tourist guide in Kolara beat of Tadoba range. He informed the officers. Prima facie, it was found to be a case of snake-bite. There was a lot of internal bleeding and the doctor said it was a case of heamolytic intoxication which prevents blood clotting," TATR Field Director Virendra Tiwari told The Sunday Express.

Sources, however, said that no bite marks could be found on the body.
