A tiger cub allegedly injured by poachers near Bhopal last week died Monday,the second such death since June.

The cub,aged around 10 months,was found half-paralysed in a pit at Kathotia on September 19. Forest department officials said the rear half of the cub’s body was paralysed from falling into a 40-feet deep pit but wildlife activist Ajay Dubey contested the claim. The pit,he said,was only five feet deep and a cub of that age could easily negotiate such a fall.
