NEWSLINK: 8 tiger cubs spotted in Pilibhit reserve

The pall of gloom that had descended over the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve following reports of dwindling tiger population over the past few years seems to have been lifted. As many as eight tiger cubs were reportedly spotted by PTR field staff five during the installation of camera traps for tiger counting. The age of these cubs is being assessed between two months and a year. 

With the sighting of these cubs, PTR officials are now expressing hopes that there might be more cubs in the jungle area. The actual number of cubs would be confirmed by the compilation of tiger pictures once the tiger census process is completed across all five ranges of PTR.
