Saddened to announce that nine year old tigress ‘Kankati’, was found dead yesterday in Bandhavgarh National Park. Her body was discovered by locals, and has been sent for a post-mortem examination. It did show signs of injury, which could’ve been caused by a fight with another tiger, however, officials aren’t ruling out poaching.
She was a granddaughter of Sita, and is survived by three, five month old cubs which forest officials are now searching for.

Cheetah mom has paws full with these 6 cuddly cubs
The Burgers Zoo’s sextuplets, born on May 24, are quite rare. Typically, a cheetah only gives birth to two to four cubs per litter. A litter of six energetic cubs may sound like a lot, but some cheetah mothers have been known to give birth to nine cubs in a single gestation period.
