Bhopal, Dec 5 (PTI) The tiger brought to mate with two felines translocated to revive the big cat population in Madhya Pradesh's Panna Tiger Reserve has moved out of the reserve.

"The tiger translocated to Panna last month from Pench Tiger Reserve -both situated in eastern Madhya Pradesh - moved out of the reserve a week ago," Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) R S Negi told PTI today.

"The tiger has moved to the Damoh Forest Division, 35 - 40 km away from the reserve," he said, adding it was not a serious matter.

He said the tiger cannot be confined in the reserve given that it has not yet formed its territory and the place was new for the animal.

Negi said they were not getting frequent signals from satellite collar fitted around the tiger.
