LE BILAN OFFICIEL DES MORTS VIOLENTES DE TIGRES SAUVAGES DUES A UNE INTERVENTION HUMAINE EN 2011 EST D'AU MOINS 51 (Times of India du 5 Décembre dernier).
Nous publions ici la "bonne nouvelle" suivante publiée par le même journal le 23 Décembre.
Avec, pour notre part, une extrême prudence quant à sa réalité effective.
KOLKATA: Buxa Tiger Reserve, a favourite holiday destination for wildlife lovers where tales abound of phantom tiger sightings, may have finally regained its stripes.
A report by the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB) has concluded that the North Bengal reserve - which has never had a steady tiger population and hasn't reported a sighting for over a decade - is home to 20 tigers, four of which are female. "The report was sent to us last week," said SB Mondal, principal chief conservator of forests (wildlife). "The scientists have done a DNA analysis of the scat samples sent to them in March. We always knew there were tigers in the park, but the sightings were low. Now, with the CCMB's report of 20 tigers, we have enough reason to back our claims."
Pendant ce temps, le gouvernement indien prépare pour cette année l'ouverture d'un centre de reproduction pour tigres blancs " who will eventually be released into semi-wild habitats"... (Hindustan Times du 1er janvier ).
