Suspected poisoning kills tigress in KNP

By Correspondent

KOHORA, Feb 4 � Notwithstanding the tall claims made from time to time about conservation stories, the National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) as well as the State forest department have not been able to prevent killing of Royal Bengal tigers.

According to sources, the post-mortem report of a sub-adult tigress, the carcass of which was recovered yesterday, suggested that the animal died due to suspected poisoning.

Veterinary experts Dr Abhijeet and Dr Jimmy said that while conducting post-mortem of the carcass, they found beef in the animal�s stomach, adding that perhaps somebody spread some organophosporous chemical on the carcass of a calf to kill the Royal Bengal tigress.

Unfortunately, at the time of recovery of the tigress� carcass in the drain covered with grass, its legs were found tied with a rope, which indicated that poachers were involved in the killing with logistical help from some local people, the sources claimed.

Poachers arrested: In a major achievement, staff of Kaziranga National Park yesterday arrested five poachers, Nur Kassam from Bishwanath Chariali, Matibur Rahman from Bihali, Samsul Haque from Jinjia, Rahul Amin from Bishwanath Ghat and Asad Ali from Bishwanath Chariali, from Murhowa Chapori area of the first addition near the river Brahmaputra with the help of a sniffer dog and recovered a blood stained axe from them.
