Ghana tiger sent to Sariska

A tiger which strayed out from the Ranthambhore reserve and was staying in the Keoladev National Park, Bharatpur, for some months, was sent to the Sariska tiger sanctuary in Alwar district tonight. The feline, T-7, was tranquilised and caught from Kaladhar area in the bird sanctuary this afternoon and later sent to Sariska for release in a huge open enclosure for the time being.
In a bid to revive tiger population in the reserve from where that was wipe-out by poachers about six years ago, a rare translocation project has been taken up in mid-2008 and since then two tigers and three tigresses had been air-lifted to Sariska from Ranthambhore tiger project area in Sawai Madhopur district. However, one of the two tigers, translocated from Ranthambhore, was killed by villagers in the reserve in November last year.
