Tiger skin & bones seized in Dudhwa Tiger Reserve


28 October 2007


A tiger skin and bones were seized last night, 27 October 2007, from a village in the Mailani Range of Dudhwa Tiger Reserve, by forest officials. Three poachers were arrested. Dudhwa has long been vulnerable to poachers due to its location on the Indo-Nepal border; wildlife criminals can commit a crime and simply vanish over the border. The Range Officer of Mailani and the Field Director's team are to be highly recommended for this successful enforcement operation.

 The earlier report of three tiger skins seized near Mumbai on 25 October by the Crime Police, turned out to be a false alarm. They were painted dog skins. On the same day, there was another report from Son Bhadra in Uttar Pradesh of a seizure of ten tiger skins. Fortunately these also turned out to be fake skins.
