Tiger dies after eating feral cattle.

Tiger in Kota’s MHTR sanctuary dies after preying on feral cattle.  Feral cattle are believed to be a problem in all tiger reserves across the country, which are exposed to villages and human habitation.  A tiger has died in Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserve (MHTR) in Rajasthan’s Kota district because of preying on feral cattle that led to accumulation of fat in its vital organs, which has triggered a fresh move to relocate at least three of the 14 villages located within the reserve on an urgent basis.  MT-3, the tiger, had died on Thursday (July 23) in Mashalpura block of MHTR and its autopsy revealed a lump of fat in its heart, lungs and other vital organs.  See link below to read more on this story.
