20% of Tigers Missing at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve!

As at the date of this post four tigers are "missing" at Ranthambore National Reserve. The authorities don't know the exact number of tigers at the reserve but an estimate is around 20. A very low figure but it is a small reserve (too small you might say).

So a loss (temporary?) of four represents a twenty percent loss. Of course they may turn up but then again they may not.

What chance that they have been poached?

Poaching and corruption of officials that supports poaching is dire in the conservation community in India it seems to me.

The reserve is 12 km from Sawai Madhopur town. There is a train station at Sawai Madhopur.
