Newborn tiger cubs are new favourites in Ranchi’s Birsa Zoological Park

There is enough crowd at the zoo at every enclosure but what took the cake on Sunday was the tiger enclosure, outside which the zoo authorities have installed screens which airs live CCTV footage of the cubs with their mother. The visitors, however, are not allowed to see the cubs directly to make sure to give them enough privacy in their early days.

The zoological park previously had three adult tigers; Shiva, Malik and Anushka among which the latter two had three cubs. Both the mother and the cubs are kept under watch to keep them safe and healthy.

According to latest date by the environment ministry, the count of tigers in India has risen from 2,226 in 2014 to 2,500 in 2016. Conservation experts credit the rise in population to better management and policing of tiger habitats across the country.
