The forest guards of Jonai Forest Range spotted the pugmarks during routine patrolling in the deep jungles of the reserved forest near Leku Beat Office recently.

Meanwhile, wildlife enthusiasts, including NGO Save Poba Reserved Forest are delighted with the reported spotting of the pugmarks of a Royal Bengal Tiger in Poba Reserved Forest. The NGO has been demanding the authority to declare the Poba Reserved Forest as a wildlife sanctuary.

However, the forest officials are allegedly not showing much enthusiasm on the reported spotting of the pugmarks.

Though big cat species, like leopards, leopard cats and jungle cats are found in the reserved forest, Royal Bengal Tiger is usually not found in it.

Poba RF is located in the outskirt of Ruksin town and adjacent to Daying Ering Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh.
