In the state of Madhya Pradesh, in Central India, Kanha National Park has become a sanctuary for the Bengal Tiger. There is hardly any left Will the tiger become extinct like the thylacine? The Caspian, Bali, and Java tigers have disappeared. Here in Kanha, the Wildlife Protection Society is trying to prevent the same thing from happening to the Bengal tiger. In this park the striped felines still enjoy a natural equilibrium. A tiger needs prey and here it can be found everywhere. The last Maharaja of Alwar came to the Sariska forests to hunt for tigers. Today the ancient palace has been turned into a hotel, and the jungle has become their sanctuary. One positive paradox for a change! Ahimsa is a three-year-old tigress that has just arrived to the Park. Let’s just say that she is settling-in. Let’s hope the male admits her in his domain. He does accept her; it looks like there is good chemistry between them. Fortunately, the tigress is receptive and she ends up welcoming his proposals During the next five days they will mate some 200 times And here she is, so calm, with the two cubs fruit of their union. The male disappeared and more than likely she will not see him again. She will feed the cubs and raise them all by herself. She will need between 17 and 22 pounds of meat per day to feed them, times 12 months. That is 6,600 pounds, which in “hunting terms” that means about 40 animals per year. For now the tiger is safe from human greed in Kannha. The truth is that as a species we are a true plague.
