Three tigers kept inside a cage at the Parsa National Park (PNP) have died over the last few months. Two male and one female tigers rescued from Chitwan National Park and Thori of Parsa were placed in the cage.

An 8-year-old male tiger which was brought here after being rescued from Chitwan National Park died lately, according to an official at the Parsa National Park. PNP Information Officer Santosh Bhagat said the big cat, which was sick for few days, was found dead when the staff went to the cage to feed it.

Two tigers kept in a cage at PNP also died a couple of months ago. The PNP Administration informed that the tigers might have died due to illness as they were kept in a small cage that could accommodate a maximum of two tigers.
