Kaziranga and Orang may fill Buxa's tiger void

The north Bengal tiger reserve, which has never had a steady tiger population and has never reported a sighting in more than a decade, may become a home for dispersing and surplus tigers from Assam's Kaziranga and Orang national parks. The Kaziranga landscape, that's connected to Karbi-Anglong in south, Nameri in north and Orang on west, holds about 163 tigers. The recent tiger census, based on scat-sample analysis, found only three tigers in the entire north Bengal.
