A tiger was found dead under suspicious circumstances with its carcass hanging from a tree in a clutch-wire trap near the Panna Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh, a forest official said on Wednesday.
The clutch wire (found in vehicles) is generally used by poachers to trap animals, the official said, adding they suspect a trap was laid for some other animal and the tiger got trapped in it.
Forest officials on Tuesday night got information that a tiger carcass was found hanging from a tree in Tilgua beat’s compartment no. 460 in the north forest division near the Panna Tiger Reserve following which a team of forest personnel reached the spot, he said.
It is a mystery how the heavy tiger, about two years old, got trapped in the wire and hung from a tree, the official said.
