CHITWAN: A tiger has been transferred to Bardiya due to the shortage of cage at the Chitwan National Park (CNP) in Chitwan.

CNP’s Information Officer Ganesh Prasad Tiwari said that man-eating and violent tigers are kept in cage, but a tiger is being shifted to Bardiya due to paucity of space. A male tiger of around four years old has been sent to Bardiya.

This tiger was captured in August after it devoured a man in Kumroj settlement of Khairahani Municipality-12.

Four ferocious tigers are kept in cage at Kasara while two such tigers are kept in Sauraha. A female tiger of about 10 years of age has been kept at Sauraha after it attacked a person in Manahari of Makawanpur some days back.

Meanwhile, the CNP is facing problem in management with the increasing number of aggressive tigers. A tiger is fed five kilos of buff in a gap of one day. Managing the tigers kept in cage has become difficult for CNP due to shortage of space, human resources and food.

There are 355 tigers throughout the country, including 128 tigers in CNP. The Park has relocated two aggressive tigers in the current fiscal year. A tiger was transferred to Parsa National Park before this.
