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.
