Are we really conserving tigers?Again two male tigers found dead in Maharashtra between Sunday and Monday in the Pauni range in the periphery of Umred-Karhandla-Paoni Wildlife Sanctuary in Nagpur. A half-eaten carcass of a wild pig was found near one of the tigers, raising the forest department's suspicion that it may have been a poisoned bait.
As per the reports, 92 tigers died in 2018 and state of Madhya Pradesh tops the list. Here 23 tigers were killed and in Maharashtra 21 tigers were killed.
Doesn't feel strange? As at one hand, we are protecting them as they are endangered species and on the other hand, they are being killed or dying at a fast pace. What sort of conservation it is?
