NEWSLINK: Three days after translocation, tiger RT-91 makes first kill in Mukundra reserve
A male tiger--RT-91—that was translocated from Ranthambore to the Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserve (MHTR) in Rajasthan’s Kota earlier this month, killed its first prey on April 3, state wildlife officials said on Saturday.
The adult tiger killed a buffalo inside the reserve, three days after being tranquilized and relocated to the MHTR, said deputy conservator of forest (MHTR) T Mohanraj.
The tiger didn’t kill a prey for the first three days of its stay at the reserve as it had already been fed at the Ramgarh Vishdhari sanctuary but finally the big cat made its first kill within the reserve on April 7, where 22 cheetahs and two buffaloes were kept as the prey base, he said.
