Tiger mauled to death by another in fierce battle in Corbett Reserve

A fierce battle for supremacy between two tigers shook the Kalagarh range of Uttarkhand’s Corbett Tiger Reserve today and resulted in the death of one of the rival big cats.

The victorious tiger badly mauled the hind part of the rival and was hovering around the carcass till late tonight, the Director of Corbett Tiger Reserve, Dr Ranjan Mishra, said here.

The victorious tiger was still roaring and roaming near the spot, which had made it difficult to collect the body of the killed tiger. The fight was believed to be over the supremacy of the area, Dr Mishra added.
