Tourists at the Sariska tiger reserve in Rajasthan were in for a big surprise on Tuesday when at zone number 1, near Kala Kuan, tigress ST-3 was seen engaged in a fierce fight with a leopard. Moments after the fight, the tigress, relocated to Sariska from Ranthambhore in 2009, was seen walking away with the carcass of the leopard. Sariska takes real pride in being able to increase tourist footfall these days. Spread over an area of nearly 1,281 sq km, Sariska has 13 tigers, according to the latest census.
In 2004-05, the forest department and the Rajasthan government had come under all-round criticism over the disappearance of tigers from Sariska, thanks to poaching. It was then that the state government decided to relocate tigers from Ranthambore National Park in Sawai Madhopur district of Rajasthan to Sariska. The relocation project started in 2008. Since then, the reserve has come a long way.
