Tiger corridor linking the overcrowded Tipeshwar Wildlife Sanctuary (TWS) in the Yavatmal district of Maharashtra to the Tamsi (K) forest in the northwest Adilabad district has once again come alive. Yes, the movement of a 20-month-old cub has been noticed through a camera trap on this side of the inter-state border signifying the importance of this corridor. This wild animal has been identified as from the streak inhabiting the forest of Paunar about 30 km east of the TWS. The forest department officials are monitoring the movement of this tiger (Panthera tigris) which is considered to be inexperienced, given its age, in the art of survival. Wildlife enthusiasts like the Hyderabad-based Sanjeev Siva, however, differ from this long-held notion and he was proved right as the cub was seen on camera with a wild prey its kill.
