Madhya Pradesh Records 8 Tiger Deaths in 22 Days – India Wildlife News

If you are a tiger lover or wildlife enthusiast, this is news that will leave you extremely sad and frustrated. According to news sources, the Madhya Pradesh state, known as the “Indian Tiger State”, witnessed 8 deaths of tigers in the last 22 days. The ages of all dead tigers are believed to be less than 10 years. Some of the deaths are believed to have been caused by internal strife, while prolonged illness is said to have caused the other deaths.

A sudden increase in tiger deaths is a concern

From January to March, no tiger death was observed in the state. After that, however, tiger deaths increased at an alarming rate. On Wednesday, two tiger deaths were recorded at the same time, one at the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve and the other at the Mukundpur Zoo. The forest department has been unable to determine the precise reason behind the rapid tiger deaths.

Bandhavgarh sees highest tiger deaths in Madhya Pradesh

The maximum number of tiger deaths occurred in Bandhavgarh National Park, followed by Kanha National Park. The death of a tiger was also reported in the Burhanpur forest, located on the border of Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra.

The tiger’s carcass in Bandhavgarh was reportedly found in the same spot where a tiger had killed a girl a few days ago. Authorities suspect that the tiger may have been poisoned by the villagers.
