killing by some villager or whether it died a natural death. The carcass had rotted away beyond recognition while it is also suspected that wild animals may have eaten away its flesh. Pug marks of hyenas and that of another tiger were found near the carcass.
“The trap cameras have failed to throw up any concrete picture of the movement of another tiger in the area. We will be changing their position for a better picture,” sources said. The mystery over the death deepened with possibilities that suggest death could be due to any of the reasons. “While there are canine marks on its neck but the marks are not definitive. Scientists of the Wildlife Institute of India suggested that the marks were such as the teeth were sunk in twice in the same area,” sources said.
