An issue that comes up frequently; tigers and leopards (among other animals) fall into the wells and died. The constuction of a parapet or a sheet metal plate to cover the hole could save many lives cheaply.

Then they fell camera traps, two rangers were attacked by a tiger in Magdhi zone in Bandhavgarh. One of them was hospitalized in stable condition.

A group of twenty barashingas were transferred from Kaziranga to Manas. The barasingha is a species of deer in the process of dispararition.

Madhya Pradesh state decided to transfer three tigers from Bandhavgarh to Sanjay and Satpura.
Sanjay park is very low in the number of tigers 5, but what will be the protection of animals that will be brought back? There really is no structure for this purpose.
A dilemma: let the tigers in Bandhavgarh and they kill, or put them somewhere else and they are most likely to be poached.

Assam has applied for a fourth tiger reserve: the Orang park extended to the adjacent forest reserves would be 790 km2 adjacent to the Kaziranga Park. Better protection of this key sector would be a possibility for Kaziranga's tigers to migrate with security.

40 tigers missing in the last count in Maharastra. Poaching appears to be the cause. The affected parks are Nagzira, Melghat, Bor and Umred-Kalahad. Poachers from the community Baheliya have killing at least 20 to 25 tigers in recent years.
These figures are to be compared with the seizures of skins in many parts of the country. The fight against poaching is endless in a country where poverty is large.
As the demand in products from tiger parts exist in Asian countries (China is in the top list), there will be little chance of saving the tiger.

It is a tragic fact. When the tigers are gone, it will fall back to the lions (this is already the case). When the lions are gone, etc, etc ...
The disappearance of lions followed the same downward trend as tigers with a lag of 30 years ...

I can not imagine our world without wild animals.

A second good news for Sariska. Another tigress ST10 just had 2 cubs. This is the first litter for this one.

It's decided I'm going to make a turn to see the situation by myself. I'll be at the end of November, and I'd make a record of the situation. I hope to find a better situation than that found during my visit in 2011.

Good news in Sariska. A litter of 2 tiger cubs by tigress ST2. At Last! For the rest, protection, relocation of villages, road conviction, livestock grazing, etc ... Nothing advance.
