| Friday | 11th September, 2020
While Sultan — the male tiger was brought to Sanjay Gandhi National Park (SGNP) from Nagpur with an intention to boost tiger population, the move has not been successful as all four female tigers in the park don't allow Sultan near them.
As a result, SNGP authorities have now approached Nagpur's Gorewada Zoo for a new male tiger.
