In July this year, a tigress and her two cubs were found dead in Chandrapur district with forest officials suspecting the big cats could have succumbed to poisoning. The deaths occurred after the tigress and the cubs — a male and a female — devoured a dead calf that was apparently poisoned by a farmer.
