Sidhi, Oct 17 The mutilated carcass of a tigress was found in Sanjay Tiger Reserve’s Khokra forest area here, a forest official said on Thursday.
Director of the reserve Ashok Mishra confirmed the death of T-20 tigress, but said the exact cause can be ascertained only after an autopsy.
According to a forest official, they were unable to track the location of the three-and-a-half-year-old tigress for the last one week.
When they finally traced her to Chirchiri Koh with the help of a tracking device fitted on her collar on Wednesday evening, they found her carcass in a mutilated condition along with that of another animal, he added.
The young tigress was brought to Madhya Pradesh’s Sanjay Tiger Reserve from Panna Tiger Reserve in March 2018, the official said.
