Experts expect rise in tiger population in Sariska
Jaipur, Jan 16 : The wildlife experts are hopeful of a rise in tiger population in the Sariska tiger reserve in Alwar district as a tiger pair, relocated in the Sanctuary from Ranthambhor tiger project area about five months ago, gave indications of acceptance for each other.
The tiger and tigress who took time to accept each other have now been behaving well. They have come closer.
The couple was seen together for considerable time last month and since then they are seen enjoying each others company intermittently, a wildlife department spokesman said.
''We have reasons to believe that the tigress is already underway to raise the family but the confirmation will be possible only by March,'' he said.
''If this happens, this will be a great success to our project of translocating the big cats in Sariska from another sanctuary, the spokesman said.
