Posing a challenge to government’s objective of doubling tiger census by 2022, four rare spotted tigers have died within one month in Chitwan National Park and National Forest Area in Chitwan district.

Two tigers each were found dead at CNP and NFA in the district recently.

CNP Assistant Conservation and Information Officer Narendra Aryal said, “One female spotted tiger was found dead at Gaighat near Sauraha on the eastern side of Chitwan National Park.”

According to The Himalayan Times, assessing the nature of tiger’s death Aryal said, “With deep cuts and wounds in stomach and neck, it might have been killed after fighting with other tiger in the area.”

Earlier, one female tiger had succumbed to injuries after colliding with other tiger, Aryal shared.

“With the rise in population of tigers and lack of adequate space, tigers have been attacking each other recently, leading to the incident,” experts shared.

At least a single tiger requires at least 40-50 kilo metre square area as its habitat, experts added.
