NEWSLINK: Tigers are on cold shower, special diet to beat heat

As the temperature in Mumbai soars, spare a thought for the tigers and lions of the Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) and Byculla Zoo. And the authorities who take care of the animals are doing their best to keep them cool.

“We are giving regular cold water showers to the tigers, lions and leopards that are in cages,” Vikas Gupta, director of SGNP, told Free Press Journal.

The park is not just a habitat for animals, but is also the green lungs of Mumbai city as it acts as a purifier for much of Mumbai’s pollution.
