Karnataka continuing to loose more tigers
According to the statistics made available by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Karnataka stands second after Madhya Pradesh, as far as the number of tiger deaths per year was concerned. The count that stood at 7 in 2014 went up to 17 in 2016. And this year, just four months in, Karnataka has already lost more than 12 tigers for various reasons, including Prince, the most photographed tiger in South India. Interestingly, the neighbouring Tamil Nadu, which had the highest mortality a few years ago, has succeeded in bringing down its count. See link below to read the report in The Times of India.
