Bargarh: The discovery of decomposed body of a Royal Bengal tiger inside Debrigarh Wildlife Sanctuary in Bargarh district has took forest officials and animal lovers by shock.
A camera trap installed by the forest department in the sanctuary had captured the image of a Royal Bengal tiger few days back. It is suspected he is the same animal who has been killed by poachers.
It is likely that the tiger accidently fell into a trap set for hunting wild boar. Following which the hunters killed him, cut his teeth and nails and buried him in the forest.
A wildlife team from Bhubaneswar, which had visited the spot after getting information, has confirmed the animal has been murdered. He is suspected to have been killed around a week back.
