Tiger captured and shifted 300k to Panna

Wildlife activist Ajay Dubey on Friday alleged that the translocation of the tiger that was captured in Bhopal on Friday to the Panna tiger reserve, where a tigress was recently found to be infected with canine distemper virus (CDV), was in violation of guidelines. He said the way the state wildlife department hurriedly shifted the tiger that had been tranquilised and injured after falling from the roof was a clear violation of the guidelines of the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) for shifting of wild cats. The tiger was transported from Bhopal at 7 pm on Thursday and reached Panna on Friday morning, he added. See link below to read the report in the Hindustan Times.
