Tigress drowns in farm well near Tadoba

CHANDRAPURA full-grown tigress met with a tragic end when it fell into a farm well and drowned, apparently while pursuing a prey in Shivni range under Tadoba buffer zone some times during Monday night. It is the second incident of drowning of a large carnivore in a farm well without parapet wall, in TATR buffer area within a week. The district administration and zilla parishad have drawn severe criticism from wildlife activists for its apathy towards building parapet walls on farm wells in forested areas.
