Second Tiger Found Buried in Nawalparasi, Nepal Raises Concerns

The discovery of a buried tiger in Madhyabindu Municipality of Nawalparasi (Bardghat Susta East) has sparked grave concerns over wildlife conservation efforts in the region.

According to Forest Officer Durgadatta Kandel from the Chormara Range Post, the lifeless body of a male Royal Bengal tiger was unearthed in the Nawadurga Community Forest situated in Madhyabindu Municipality-15 on Saturday. The tiger was discovered approximately 500 meters south of the East-West Highway.

“This marks the second instance of a wild tiger being found dead within the span of a week in Madhyabindu municipality,” stated Officer Kandel. On February 16, another male tiger was discovered deceased in the Arunkhola forest area, located in ward no. 10 of the same Municipality.

The repeated incidents of tiger fatalities raise alarm bells for wildlife conservationists and authorities alike. The circumstances surrounding the deaths of these majestic creatures remain under investigation, with concerns mounting over potential threats posed to Nepal’s tiger population.

Efforts are underway to ascertain the cause of death and to address any underlying issues that may jeopardize the survival of tigers in the region. Wildlife conservation measures are being intensified to safeguard the endangered species and their habitats, with a renewed emphasis on community engagement and law enforcement to combat poaching and illegal wildlife trade.

As Nepal strives to preserve its rich biodiversity and protect its iconic wildlife, the recent incidents serve as a stark reminder of the urgent need for concerted action to ensure the survival of tigers and other vulnerable species for future generations.
