Dehradun, June 1 -The tenth tiger death that took place in the Jim Corbett National Park Landscape yesterday was a result of an attempted poaching. The post-mortem report of the dead eight-year-old tiger today confirmed that injuries on its neck were caused by a snare. Till yesterday, the forest authorities of the Ramangar division, where the tiger death took place, were attributing the death to a struggle for territory between two tigers.

A joint team of veterinarians, comprising Rajeev Singh, RK Pathak and Dinesh Arya, who conducted the post-mortem examination, confirmed the injury marks on the neck of the tiger were caused by a snare. The team has also sent the viscera of the dead tiger to a higher centre. Ramanagar Divisional Forest Officer Ravindra Juyal admitted that the tiger could have died after getting stuck in a snare. He, however, said the snare could have been put up by some villagers to trap a deer and not necessarily meant to target a tiger.
