Madhya Pradesh: 2 Tigers Roaming In Bhopal Residential Areas; After MANIT Big Cat Seen In Danish Hills

After the terror of the tiger in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal's Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology (Manit), now a tigress has registered its presence in city's Danish Hills. The administration is also surprised by the presence of two tigers in the area adjoining Kaliasot area. 

In the residential area Danish Hills, the tigress was seen roaming on Wednesday morning. Hearing the tigress's roar, many people on morning walks had to run away. This tigress was also seen in the evening.

This tigress reached Danish Hills after 17 days from the Walmi (Water and Land Management Institute) complex. 

2 adult cubs in Bhopal residential areas: Two adult cubs of tigress 123 are roaming in the residential areas. One of them is this tigress. It is identified as T-3, while there is movement of another tiger in MANIT campus also since 3rd October.

Eyewitnesses said when they saw the tigress in the morning, they got scared and returned. Some local residents of Danish Hills said that they heard the roar.

Tigress reached Danish Hills from Walmi: When the entire staff of the Forest Department was in MANIT, the tigress had left the Walmi complex and reached Danish Hills. 

Bhopal forest division does not have enough resources to keep an eye on both the tigers. It is suspected that the tigress reached the Danish Hills area from the new bridge built near Walmi covering a distance of about 700 meters.

No management plan: RP Singh, former APCCF, says that the Wildlife Headquarters should have taken concrete steps. Mridul Pathak, former director of Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve, said that a barrier has to be created for the tigers, otherwise they will continue to roam freely. The forest officials have not prepared any management plan.

Combing patrol to be conducted: Alok Pathak, DFO Bhopal said it is true that the people saw the tiger. We will get its pugmarks checked. At the same time, it has been decided to conduct combing patrol to get the correct location of the tiger in MANIT.
