LUCKNOW: The Kheri tiger has started adjusting to its new environment in zoo. "It is eating well,'' said Renu Singh, zoo director. The tiger is a male and a young one, not more than four years old.
Ever since it was rescued from Kheri and brought to the zoo last week it is being kept under special care. The tiger was declared a man-eater after it killed five human beings in villages of north and south Kheri.
The tiger has no disability except the three injury marks on its head. It is a bit ferocious but anything beyond this is not known about the feline that was caught after one-and-half-month long trail.
Nothing has been decided as yet on the permanent stay of the tiger in the zoo, is the best that authorities could share about it. It has been kept away from the other inmates and general public inside the zoo hospital.
