Jamuna, the Royal Bengal tigress of the Indore zoo which escaped her enclosure twice in a fortnight, was put in a cage on Tuesday. Kamla Nehru zoo officials said the feline has been showing aggressive and abnormal behaviour, and hence has to be put in a cage for a few days under observation before releasing her in a bigger enclosure.

Earlier on Monday, the tigress scaled the 15-foot fence to soak up the sun in the buffer zone, the last barrier that separates her fangs and claws from zoo-goers and keepers. Thankfully, Monday was a holiday and there were no visitors. Zoo staff were present when the incident happened. Jamuna was in the buffer area for about 15 minutes before the staff guided her back into the enclosure.
