New Delhi: Wildlife officials have shifted a tiger from the Ranthambore National Park to the Sariska Tiger Reserve.
The tiger was taken on Saturday afternoon on a helicopter to Sariska, which lost all its tigers to poaching.
In all three tigers - one male and two females - are to be transferred to Sariska.
The tigers are also being radio-collared so that they can be tracked via satellite.
National Tiger Conservation Authority and Rajasthan government is carrying out the experiment of shifting tigers’ homes.
A team of scientists from the Wildlife Institute of India is at Ranthambhore National Park to monitor the transfer of tigers.
But some conservationists are asking if Sariska will be safe for these tigers and the park is still easily accessible to the public and there is a highway that passes through the forest.
