NEWSLINK: SGNP officials help big cats cool down even as mercury continues upward swing

Residents are not alone in their struggle to cope with the rising mercury and humidity. Officials of Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) said the big cats housed in the park are also showing signs of heat stress.

"The first thing we did this year was to install a digital thermometer in the cages of all big cats, including leopards, lions and tigers. We have been able to monitor heat levels, and take immediate action if temperatures soar," said Dr Shailesh Pethe, Veterinary Officer, SGNP.
