More Tiger Skins Seized in Kerala


25 July 2005

One tiger skin, skull, claws and teeth were seized on 25 July 2005 by the Forest Department of Kerala. Two people have been arrested, while three others are absconding. The 8 foot long skin and other tiger parts were seized by the Range Officer (RO) of Devikulam Range, Munnar Division, Mr. Prem Kumar.

Three days ago, on 22 July 2005, Mr. Prem Kumar had seized another tiger skin and arrested three men  once again, from Devikulam Range. This seizure was a result of follow-up investigations into the leopard skin seizure of 10 July 2005, reported by the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WPSI).

Today's case is the third tiger skin seizure in and around Periyar Tiger Reserve in the month of July.

Meanwhile, the police seized a pair of tusks and some fake currency on 21 July 2005, in Perinthalmanna, Malappurum district, Kerala. They arrested four men, while one man is believed to be absconding. The Forest Department has also registered a case. RO Mr. Sudarshan is investigating the matter.
