Tigress from Ranthambhore to be relocated to Sariska

The fourteen tigers at Sariska are soon likely to be joined by a fifteenth tigress from Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve.  During 2005 Sariska lost all its tigers to poaching. Since then the authorities have been working to reintoduce the big cats from neighbouring Ranthambhore that enjoys an excellent density of tigers.  At present there are two dominant male tigers at Sariska and to maintain the ideal ratio of one male tiger to three females introducing a third male tiger would be an excellent option. It is hoped that the new tiger will be introduced shortly after the monsoon with September being a likely month for the relocation to take place.  To read more please follow the the link to The Times of India.
