Worrying news from Ranthambhore as 'Machali' goes missing
I learnt today that Ranthambhore's well known tigress 'Machali' has not been seen for about two weeks. 'Machali' is a tigress whose fortunes I have been following for many years and has produced four litters of cubs. Now at over 16 years of age she no longer has any canine teeth although only last May I witnessed her on an adult Samba deer kill which she was relishing. I hope that she will be found safe and well although I do have strong doubts that she wiil be seen again. As and when I receive any further news on this wonderful old tigress I will update "Tiger News".
