The number of deaths of big cats in Jim Corbett National park this month has reached to two as the carcass of another tiger recovered from the reserve area on Monday night. A squad of wild life rangers found the carcass of a tiger from the Bannakhera range. This death has again raised questions about national animal’s security in one of the oldest national parks of the country, however, the death of yet another feline has been considered as a natural dying by the forest staff.

“Bordering on Monday, one of our divisions found a dead tiger in the western side of the park,” said a forest official. Adding to this Nishant Verma, another high level forest official told us that it was a male tiger. It appeared like a pretty old tiger and there was no sign of any injury over his body at all. Moreover, the official provided the information that the postmortem might be performed by the end of Tuesday. “Indeed, it seems like a natural death at first but anything before final postmortem would be much hurry,” Nishant pointed out.

In another statement from Mr. R N Pandey, Sub Division Officer, Terai West Forest Range told, “The death of the tiger seems like a natural death however, nothing can be said before the post mortem.. Furthermore Mr. Pandey added saying that the tiger found dead was of 9 feet 3 inches in length and probably around 9 years old.

In another case, a leopardess also found dead from the Almora district in State of Uttrakhand yesterday. The dead body of this female leopard recovered from the Bhikiyasain region and it appeared like heavily mauled by a group of wild pigs.
