Leaping Tigress

The pregnant tigress, in the photo, had wandered off the Sunderbans Tiger Reserve to a village, Deulbari, about 150 miles south of Calcutta. She was tranquillized and relocated deep inside a mangrove reserve (it is unclear if this is a different reserve than she came from based on the report, to me anyway). She is leaping off the fishing vessel used to transport her to the reserve.

Tigress’s spectacular leap to freedom

Tigers have been slowly disappearing from forests and reserves in India due to poaching, growing tourism, and a shortage of properly trained forest guards. The tiger population has dropped from nearly 3,600 five years ago to about 1,411, the government-run Project Tiger said recently.
