Ustad T24 is not a man-eater return him to the wild
The National Tiger Conservation Authority has said that tiger T-24 — shifted from the Ranthambore tiger reserve to Sajjangarh zoo — was not a maneater and asked the state government to bring the big cat back to the wild. The NTCA has also asked the state government to “urgently” regulate tourism activities around the tiger reserve. The authority, the apex body for conservation of tigers in the country, has questioned the state government over shifting T-24 to a zoo instead of another location in the wild. It has also held that all three attacks by T-24 on humans—cited by the state government—occurred when humans ventured too close to the tiger inside his territory. There was “considerable time gap between the attacks” and rest of the time T-24 had stayed in his territory depending on its natural prey base, the NTCA has said.
