More than 50 Tigers died between 2002 and 2011 at renowned Kaziranga National Park in Assam, the State Forest Department said.

“58 Tigers were killed between 2002and 2011 in the National Reserve Park area. The main cause of such unnatural death of the Tigers is vast deforestation of the jungle areas,” the forest officials said.

On December 5, 2011 a tigress came out from the jungle and entered nearby Villages. That tigress was killed by police on the public street of Bosagaon area near Kaziranga National Park.

Two days later, on December 27, forest guard’s recovered a carcass of another Tigress at the Solmara area of Kaziranga National Park.

The officials said that several tigers die because they eat poisonous carcass of other dead animals such as cows and goats.

However, famous wild life activist and Chief of the Natures Beckon, a wild life NGO said, “We spend crores of Rupees in the name of wild life protection, but nothing has been done to stop this.”

Censuses and other measures, he said, only help the poachers in finding the Tigers. “Nothing is being done scientifically for the protection of these Tigers. Moreover, deforestation in large scale also causes such kind of unnatural death of these animals.”
