The amiable King of Kisli in Kanha Reserve is dead.
Kankata (aka Kariya Ghati), a 10 year old dominant male tiger in the Kisli and Sarhi ranges is confirmed dead near Mocha village this week. He was one of the few male tigers who was completely comfortable with the comings and going of visitors and guards in the park =1emand the communities outside - so his loss is sad indeed for all. The post mortem is not confirmed yet - but worryingly all the evidence points to poisoning as the suspected cause of death.
Ps: Thanks for Raja's pictures, Copter. stunning pictures. now i have to rethink my opinion about his size.
