The bird aviary will help the injured birds get good flight practice before release in their natural habitat.” She added, As long as I am in Nagpur, I want to help the birds and other animals here.”

Surya (T9), the dominant tiger of Umred Karhandla Paoni Wildlife Sanctuary (UKPWS) situated in Nagpur district, on Saturday killed one of the three cubs of Collarwali (T1) tigress and later completely consumed the flesh of the eight-month-old cub.

The Indian Express quoted Range Forest Officer Ramdas Nimbekar as saying: Surya is believd to have killed and eaten one of the three cubs of Collarwali tigress. We have found only a small part of one of the cubs limbs and his chin on the spot. Nimbekar also informed that Collarwali and her two cubs were spotted by tourists on Sunday evening and the forest officials are looking for them.

For the uninitiated, tigers are known to kill cubs not fathered by them and then have their own offspring by mating with the mother. However, cannibalism in tigers is still a subject of debate and study.

Surya was born to the famous tigress Maya in Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve in Chandrapur district. He had later moved to UKPWS. Apparently, it is now the first time Surya has consumed another tigers flesh. TOI quoted Ravikiran Govekar, Chief Conservator of Forests (CCF) and Field Director of Pench, as saying, On November 23 last year, Surya had killed a tigress and removed latters fetuses. Surya then dragged the carcass in a nearby nullah and also consumed its flesh.
