8 Kaziranga National Park Task of KazirangaIf the disappearance of tigers from Sariska National Park was shocking, this news is absolutely chilling.Authorities at Kaziranga National Park have admitted to the deaths of nine big cats in the past 3 months.The biggest casualty ever in a national park over such a brief period.Wildlife experts fear the numbers are much higher and suspect forest officers at Kaziranga are deliberately quoting a lower figure to avert a full-blown investigation.Speaking to TOI, Kaziranga National Park director S N Buragohain claimed the reason behind the deaths ranged from poisoning by villagers to infighting among tigers and old age.Experts, however, rubbished the argument and said several deaths had occurred due to poaching at the park.
