KAZIRANGA, July 15 - A tigress of Royal Bengal species, which had strayed into the residence of one Pravin Bora at Bagmari under western range of Bagori in Kaziranga National Park, was rescued by a joint team of forest staff, veterinarians from Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) under Wildlife Trust of India and officials from local administration on Wednesday.
According to Director of Kaziranga National Park P Shiva Kumar, the tigress took shelter in the house two days ago.
�It was a matter of concern for all of us. We initially thought that the tigress would go away but it did not move from there. So we decided to tranquilise the big cat,� Kumar said.
Dr Ali said that the health condition of the tigress was out of danger. It would be released into the forest after consultation with the experts.
