Van Vihar’s tigress ‘Reena’ is dead

BHOPAL: ‘Reena’, a 19-year-old senile tigress of Van Vihar National Park Bhopal died on Thursday. Reena was born at Van Vihar on August 30, 1994. Average age of tigers is 14-15 years. Reena had abandoned regular food from April 23. Wildlife doctors were administering medicines to her, but these were proving to be ineffective due to her senility.

Post-mortem of the tigress was conducted by Van Vihar’s veterinary doctor Dr Atul Gupta and Dr Seema Bhindwale of State Veterinary Diseases Research Lab. Prima facie, inability of internal organs to function properly due to senility was found to be cause of death. The tigress was cremated after post-mortem.
