Operation to nab tiger continues
The tigress was spotted in a cotton field at Antare Santhe, 2 km from the tiger sanctuary. The operation was called off in the evening. Foresters will launch the drive to capture it on Thursday morning.
The tigress is believed to be eight years old. It was limping when it was sighted suggesting that it is injured and hence looking for easy prey outside the forest.
