A team of trackers has been roped into service to find the whereabouts of a lioness in Sasan Gir forest, that went missing five days ago, forest officials said.

According to forest officials, the 8-year-old lioness, went missing from May 27. The forest department initially carried out a search operation in the forest area, but failed to track the lioness.

The forest officials first suspected that the lioness might have disappeared as it was a mating season of lions. But when they failed to spot the animal in the forests in the past five days, they roped in a special team to find her out.

Last week, two lion cubs were found dead after falling into well in forest region.
