Tigress Sundari in a special enclosure at Raigoga of Angul district, Odisha

Bhubaneswar: November 07: Tigress Sundari has been kept in a special enclosure at Raigoda in Angul district of Odisha. A high level committee comprising experts from National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Wildlife Institute of India and Forest Department are closely monitoring the tigress. Her condition is stated to be stable.

Experts from Nandankanan Zoo and Satkosia finally tranquilized Royal Bengal tigress Sundari near Majhipada village under Satkosia Tiger Reserve in Angul district yesterday. As informed, experts shot the tranquilizer at Sundari riding atop elephant Yoshoda, which was brought from Chandaka Forest.

The tigress was brought from Madhya Pradesh’s Bandhaygarh Tiger Reserve to Satkosia Wildlife Santuary in Angul District on June 28 with an objective to increase the big cat population in Odisha.

However, locals had been demanding for the shifting of the tigress from the forest after it allegedly killed a man on October 21 at Satkosia Forest Division.
