Tiger shifted to Sariska reserve in Rajasthan

The much-awaited relocation of a tiger from the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve (RTR) to the Sariska Tiger Reserve (STR) took place on Sunday aimed at increasing the tiger population in Sariska. The tiger, dubbed T-113, was tranquilised and shifted to STR, taking the tally of big cat population in the reserve to 25.

The shifting came at a time when the majority of the male and female tigers in Sariska have aged. The STR had witnessed country’s first tiger reintroduction programme in 2008. Currently, there are 24 tigers in the reserve, which include 10 females, seven males and seven cubs.
