Tiger skeleton recovered from Gurgaon

The Hindu, 08 July 2008

Staff Reporter

GURGAON/NEW DELHI: A complete tiger skeleton was recovered from a residential premises at Surat Nagar in Gurgaon on Monday afternoon following a combined raid by the Gurgaon police and officials of the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau.

A senior official of the Bureau said: “The raid was carried out following a tip-off from a non-government organisation working in the field of wildlife conservation. We raided the residence and found a complete tiger skeleton and traps used by poachers to capture wild animals in the forest. The skeleton weighs over 10 kg.”

Wildlife Protection Society of India’s Executive Director Belinda Wright said: “One of our informers told us about illegal tiger products being kept at the Surat Nagar residence and we passed on this information to the Wildlife Crime Control Bureau which acted very fast and raided the place in the afternoon. The team had two members from our non-government organisation besides government officials.”

“Crucial recovery”

“This is a very crucial and important recovery. The skin of the tiger has not been recovered and we fear that it might have already been sold off,” she added.

No arrests have been made in the case so far.
