Bandhavgarh’s ‘most stunning’ tigress found dumped in well

BHOPAL: Bandhavgarh’s “most beautiful tigress” has been found dead, stuffed in a sack and dumped in a well in the buffer zone of the tiger reserve.
Tigress T32 — a photographer’s delight and such a familiar sight that locals gave it a nickname — was already decomposing when its carcass was found, weighed down by two big stones. The magnificent stripes that made it popular stood out even in death and decay. “There were deep wounds on its face. The exact cause of death has not been ascertained, but we will get those involved,” Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve (BTR) field director Vincent Rahim told TOI.
The facial wounds seem to have been inflicted by an axe, said officials; perhaps a failed attempt at extracting the fangs. All body organs are intact. “It is possible that the tigress fell victim to electric wire traps laid by poachers for game meat. There is another wound on its face which seems to be made by a spear,” said an officer.
