JAIPUR: It’s the law of the jungle. But few thought one day it would take away the ‘beauty’ of the Ranthambore National Park. The forest guards of the Berda post are yet to come out of the shock of losing the most beautiful tigress that died in a territorial fight.
The partially decomposed body of the tigress, a mother of two cubs, was recovered by forest officials on Saturday.
“The last time she was seen was on Thursday, when guards found her limping. After which we lost track of her. A whole day’s search the next day failed to yield results. The shock came on Saturday when her body was found near the Bakul nullah,’’ says the chief wildlife warden, Rajasthan, R N Mehrotra.
