Cubs A Ray Of Hope In India's Fight To Save Tigers

Fourteen tiger cubs have been spotted in a leading Indian sanctuary, a rare piece of good news in the country's fight to protect its dwindling population of big cats from poachers and habitat destruction. The cubs have been sighted regularly over the past few weeks in Ranthambore National Park in western Rajasthan, R.N. Mehrotra, the state's chief wildlife warden, told Reuters on Tuesday. "The cubs belong to six or seven different mothers and they are all around three-and-a-half months old," Mehrotra said.
