DEHRA DUN: Adding to the woes of already dwindling population of the striped cats, a tiger cub was found dead on Saturday in the National Corbett Tiger Reserve in Dehra Dun, forest officials said.

The male tiger cub was washed away in the waters of Dhela river in Jhirana range of the park. Later its carcass was recovered from the nearby area.

Two elephants also died after falling from the hill top at Sauphuti area in Kalagarh and Jhirana range of the park on Friday.

Forest officials said the death of wild animals was caused apparently due to incessant rains lashing the area for the past two days. elephants_die_in_Corbett_Park/articleshow/2127942.cms
