Hier, découverte du corps d'un tigre, manifestement mort de vieillesse. Et non par le poison, dont l'usage est moins fréquent. Times of India, ce jour.
GUWAHATI: Forest officials found the carcass of a tiger in Rajiv Gandhi Orang National Park on Sunday.
"The tiger is about 15 years old. Oldage ailments are suspected to be the cause of death as the post mortem report did not find any case of poisoning," Mangaldoi wildlife divisional forest officer Sushil Kunar Daila said.
Earlier, fringe villagers used to poison tigers to death in retaliation to tigers killing their livestock. But in recent years, cases of deaths caused by poisoning have been brought down by park authorities through implementation of a fast-track compensation mechanism for the villagers in case their cattle are killed by tigers.
