The body of a full grown Royal Bengal tiger was found at Netidhopani island in the Sunderbans Tiger Reserve in West Bengal on Friday.

The body was sighted by the forest patrol personnel in the morning hours and taken to Sajnekhali for post-mortem, field director of the forest reserve Subrat Mukhopadhayay said.

The tiger was aged about 14 years and had probably died due to old age, he said.

There were no wounds or gun shot marks on the body, he said.
