Tigress in Nandankanan zoo gave birth to a black tiger, first in the Indian zoo history 


*This image is copyright of its original author


For the first time in India, the Nandankanan zoo here would be credited to have a black tiger. Out of the four cubs which are born to tigress Sneha and her partner Manish at the zoo late on Sunday night, one is found to be black, which zoo experts claimed first in the Indian zoo history. 

“Black tigers are usually seen in the Similipal jungle. But now a black tiger cub will attract visitors at the Nandankanan zoo. No other Indian zoo has a black tigers,” said Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (PCCF) SS Srivastava.

The birth of the black cub was confirmed after closely reviewing the footage of the CCTV camera installed at the tigress Sneha’s cell on Tuesday. “We have been monitoring every movement of Sneha and her four cubs round the clock since the mortality rate of tiger cubs is quite high,” said zoo Director Sudarsan Panda, adding that zoo officials and doctors are always on alert to meet any eventuality.

Leopard suffers in IMA trap for hours

A three-and-a-half year-old leopardess was found stuck in a trap made up of clutch wire at a fence between Indian Military academy's golf course and Forest Research Institute early on Sunday morning. 

To the suffering animal's misfortune, the operation to rescue it began as late as 10 am as a team of forest officials and veterinarians from Wildlife Instituteof India reached only at 9.30 am. 

The animal suffered injuries on its abdomen and had to be tranquilized repeatedly before being released in the jungles of Barkot range of Dehradun forest division.Sub divisional officer, Dehradun forest division, Bharat Singh told TOI, "The forest department would file case against the IMA authorities for setting up the trap. We will also check out for more such traps laid out in the area."

However, The IMA officials present at the spot expressed ignorance about the trap.At around 6 am on Sunday, an army personal heard the sound of a moaning leopard and informed his seniors, who then alerted the forest department. Surprisingly, the forest department did not have a single veterinarian of its own, because of which the exercise to rescue the trapped leopard was delayed. 

"The department does not have a veterinarian which is why we had to wait for one from Wildlife Institute of India," admitted Sub divisional officer Gulbir Singh.Gauri Maulekhi, member secretary of People for Animals, said, "WII veterinarian is a researcher and travels most of the times. 
Had he not been here, the forest department would have carried out this operation through somebody who is not proficient in the task." She added that the animal would have been in so much stress since Saturday night and could have died.

Impressive, but we most take this news with careful. The last time it was a cub from a white tigress, but at the end, it was just a white cub with extremely large black stripes.

Let's see what happen with this little baby. [img]images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
 


RE: Bigcats News - Pckts - 08-13-2014

Ya, she looks to be a white tiger in the image on the link. So its harder to tell.

Would love to see a new image of a wild "black" tiger. The ones with the very pronounced black stripes look so cool.


RE: Bigcats News - GuateGojira - 08-14-2014

The new case from Orissa seesm to be from a orange tigress, but as the picture is so poor, is dificult to state it at 100%. I believe she is an orange one.

A couple of big news stories for big catsSanctuary Asia11 hours agoThe Union Environment Minister, Prakash Javadekar, announced the approval of a sixth tiger reserve in Maharashtra in response to a request sent by the state government. The Bor Tiger Reserve in the Wardha district becomes India's 47th tiger reserve. This will bring much-needed funding and technical support to the 13,812 ha. Bor forest, thus strengthening tiger conservation. This critical declaration greatly enhances the link between the Tadoba-Andhari and Pench Tiger Reserves and enables an estimated 100 tigers to make use of this corridor.

The state governments were advised to send proposals on Suhelwa (Uttar Pradesh), Guru Ghasidas National Park (Chattissgarh), Mhadei Sanctuary (Goa), Srivilliputhur Grizzled Giant Squirrel / Megamalai Wildlife Sactuaries / Varushanadu Valley (Tamil Nadu) and Dibang Wildlife Sanctuary (Arunachal Pradesh).Giving details of tiger deaths till August 6 this year, the minister said inside tiger reserves, a total of 24 cases were under scrutiny.

State seeks Rs 76 lakh for shifting feline to Similipal Tiger Reserve

The wildlife wing of the forest department has sent a proposal worth Rs 76-lakh to National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) for relocating and monitoring the Royal Bengal Tiger, which had strayed into Nandankanan in April last year. It will be shifted to Similipal Tiger Reserve (STR).

Official sources said scientists of Dehradun-based Wildlife Institute of India (WII) have prepared the proposal. "We will fix a date for shifting the tiger to STR once NTCA approves the proposal and sanctions funds. A radio collar for the tiger will be procured with the money," said principal chief conservator of forest (wildlife) S S Srivastav.

STR authorities have selected two sites for the feline, he added.

"We have selected Nawana (north) range and Chahala range, keeping in view the density of prey population. These two sites are free from human interference and have many water bodies with standard forest density," said STR field director Anup Nayak.


In January, the NTCA had given a proposal to the government to shift the tiger to STR. But there has been an inordinate delay in the process.

"A team of WII scientists would come to Bhubaneswar to oversee it. They are likely to bring a radio collar with them," said a wildlife officer.

The tiger had strayed into Nandankanan on April 30 last year. It was captured in the CCTV camera. On May 20, it was brought to an enclosure. After 10 days, the feline scaled the enclosure and fled the zoo. But it walked back after three weeks.

Last hope of stopping lion transfer dashed

In a major blow to the Gujarat government, the last hope against translocation of Asiatic lions to Kuno Palpur has been dashed. The three judge bench headed by Chief Justice of India R M Lodha rejected the curative petition filed by Gujarat government against the apex court's order directing the translocation to Kuno Palpur.

On April 15, 2013, the apex court in a judgment directed that the lions be translocated to Kuno-Palpur in Madhya Pradesh from the Gir Sanctuary. The apex court had also formed a 12-member expert group to decide on aspects of the translocation. The court had, in the order dated April 15, 2013, directed that the translocation be done in accordance with the guidelines of IUCN.

The apex court had asked the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) to take urgent steps for the reintroduction of a small number of lions to Kuno from Gir, on the ground that the highly-endangered species needed to be dispersed to eliminate the risk of extinction in case of an epidemic.

The bench of Justice K S Radhakrishnan and Justice C K Prasad had ruled that no state, organization or person can claim ownership or possession of wild animals in forests. Animals in the wild are the property of the nation for which no state can claim ownership and the states duty is to protect wildlife and conserve it.


Gujarat had later in May 2013 preferred a review petition which was dismissed in October the same year.

Later, the Gujarat government filed a curative petition. The petition was taken up on Tuesday for an in-chamber hearing by Chief Justice of India R M Lodha, Justice H L Dattu and Justice T S Thakur.

The three-judge bench in the order said: "We have gone through the curative petition and the relevant documents. In our opinion, no case is made out. Hence, the curative petition is dismissed."

With this curative petition dismissed, Gujarat is left with no legal option but to translocate the lions to Kuno Palpur from Gir. The matter now rests with the 12-member committee, which has senior government officials along with lion expert Ravi Chellam and scientist Y V Jhala, which will have to take a final call.
