A tigress has given birth to three cubs at the Panna Tiger Reserve, taking their total number in the park to 26, a top official said in Sagar today.
Field Director RS Murthy said the tigress tagged "T-6" and three of her cubs were spotted for the first time at Hinotia range of the reserve recently. The cubs are about two-months-old.
Mr Murthy said since three cubs have been spotted, the tiger population in Panna Tiger Reserve has risen to 26.
Tigress 'T-6' had delivered a cub in August last year but couldn't rear it.
Tigress 'T-6' was relocated to the reserve from the Pench Tiger Reserve in January 2014 under this scheme.
