Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A male tiger in the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh's Umaria district killed a two-year-old tigress, according to a forest official on Thursday. The incident occurred after a confrontation on Tuesday, as reported by Manpur ranger Mukesh Ahirwar.

Forest guards discovered the tigress's carcass around 9 am on Tuesday, prompting them to notify senior officers. The examination revealed a broken neck and nail injuries on the tigress, indicating that she was killed in a tiger fight. Following an autopsy, the carcass was disposed of in accordance with regulations.

Madhya Pradesh boasts several tiger reserves, including Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Pench, Satpura, Panna, and Sanjay Dubri.
