Nagpur Bureau : The Gorewada International Zoo in Nagpur got its first tiger for the Indian safari, work for which has almost been completed. Rajkumar, a 5.5-year-old male captured from Tumsar in Bhandara district last year, was transferred to the new zoo on Friday from Gorewada Rescue Centre, where it has been staying since its capture.
The Central Zoo Authority (CZA) has granted permission for two tigers, seven leopards and six sloth bears initially for the Indian safari, which is likely to be inaugurated next month in Gorewada.
“Rajkumar is a friendly tiger and cooperated well, ensuring that the move was smooth,” said Gorewada Divisional Forest Officer Pramod Panchbhai. He further said, “We will be moving eight-year-old tigress Lee, bred in captivity in the city’s Maharajbagh zoo,” adding, “other animals will also be moved one by one.” The Gorewada zoo will also have an African safari in the next phase of development.
