One more tigress died in the Kanha Tiger Reserve (KTR) in Mandla district, the third wild cat to die in Madhya Pradesh in the last six days.

During patrolling, a team of forest officials found the tigress in a serious condition in KTR's Kisli range on Saturday, but could not save it, official sources said here today.

Circumstantial evidence did not suggest that the wild cat was poached by poisoning, the sources said, adding the exact cause of the death would be known after the autopsy report.

On July 24, a 10-year-old tigress was found dead in KTR's Kisli range while carcass of another feline was spotted two days ago near Talgaon village under Panna Tiger Reserve in the state.
