| Monday | 11th February, 2019
A search for a tiger is underway in Mahisagar forest range after a school teacher told forest officials of spotting a tiger near Boriya village in Lunawada taluka and showed them a photograph of a tiger crossing a road which he had reportedly taken from his cellphone, four days ago.
However, in the last four days, forest officials have not found any pug marks or any physical evidence to confirm the sighting.
However, forest officials denied any such sighting and discarded the claims as rumours.
AdvertisingLast July, pug marks of a tiger were spotted in Koknipada village, some 30 km from Tapi district, in neighbouring Maharashtra.
Forest officials have installed three camera traps and around twenty foresters are patrolling the area to find evidence of the big cat’s presence.
