Jorhat, April 19: A carcass of a Royal Bengal tiger was recovered from Gorabhanga area of the Orang National Park today.
The post-mortem conducted on the carcass reveals that the female tiger, about seven years old, died of infighting. The carcass was later burnt in the presence of National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) officials.
An Orang official said at least three tigers have been spotted in the particular area in the last few days and this could have resulted in an in-fighting. The smallest national park of the state recorded 24 tigers in the last census.
