Avni’s cub to be released in the wild after a year of foster care
Tigress Avni, who was shot in the forests of Maharashtra last year, left behind two cubs, a male and a female. The female cub will now be released into the wild in November, after nearly a year in foster care. The cub was rescued a month after Avni was killed in November 2018 and kept at the Pench tiger reserve. Avni’s male cub, however,has not been seen since January this year, when it jumped over a fence in one of the forest divisions.
