NEWSLINK: 40 big cats die in Madhya Pradesh in 14 months

Madhya Pradesh takes pride in calling itself a tiger state but with 40 tigers deaths reported from across the state in the past one year or so, it is fast assuming the tag of 'tiger killer' state. The latest deaths have been reported from the Bandhavgarh National Park where two tiger cubs succumbed to the deadly parvovirus on Sunday afternoon.

The two tiger cubs who succumbed to the deadly Parvovirus on Sunday were orphaned when their mother was electrocuted by poachers in Shahdol on January 19. The two along with their third sibling were rescued by the field staff of the Bandhavgarh national park and despite their best efforts the two could not be saved.
