T6, a tigress from the Pench National Park, was released in the Panna Tiger Reserve on Wednesday.
This marks the beginning of phase 2 of the reintroduction of tigers into Panna, which had lost all its big cats in 2009. The Tigress is about three years old, and began the long journey from Pench on MP’s border with Maharashtra to Panna in the north on Tuesday, wearing a radio collar and travelling tranquillised in a special carriage.
The first phase of relocation and subsequent breeding had resulted in a gender imbalance in Panna. T6 came alone, another female will follow. T6 will be Panna’s seventh female. The park has 9 males and 8 cubs.
