The tigress T-6, brought to Panna Tiger Reserve from Pench under the ambitious programme to repopulate the habitat with big cats, has delivered three cubs, park officials discovered recently.
A patrolling squad spotted the tigress T-6 with the cubs in Hinouta Range of the reserve.
The latest additions push the tiger population in the reserve to 26.
In a statement announced on Monday, officials said the two month old cubs were first spotted on Thursday.
T-6 was brought to the reserve in January 2014 and had given birth to a cub in August 2014.
But being its first offspring, the tigress couldn’t raise the cub, officials said.
