Tass tigress seems headed towards home territory

NAGPUR: The radio-collared Tass tigress, which was trapped in a drainage well and released in its original habitat post treatment on November 27, seems to be heading back towards its home territory Bhiwapur.

By December-end, the tigress had traversed almost 35 km and had gone close to Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR). It was hardly 15 kms away from the park boundary. After a long stay in Brahmapuri forest division, it was expected that it may settle down in the area but didn't.

S K Khetarpal, principal chief conservator of forests (PCCF) for wildlife, Maharashtra, who is closely monitoring the tigress, said the animal might be heading towards its old territories and clusters recorded on February 2, show it was heading towards Paoni.

"I feel the tigress might be returning due to presence of other resident tigers in the area where it went. In the past two months, it must have travelled over 80 kms," Khetarpal said. He said a team monitoring the animal said that the tigress was intelligent and had crossed railway line, nullahs and state highway during its return journey as well. It hides itself well in the bushes from people.

The tigress was rescued on October 13 from an open drainage well adjoining Tass forest in Bhiwapur range. It was released in its original habitat after treatment on November 27. Prior to its release, it was believed that the tigress was a resident of Ranmangli and hence should be released there only. Tigers, however, are great wanderers and often traverse long distances to find territory or mate.

In 2009, a radio-collared tiger had travelled 250 kms from Kanha to Pench. Similarly, last year, a radio-collared tigress from MP Pench had reached Mansinghdeo sanctuary in Maharashtra.
