Maharashtra govt planning to relocate tigers from Vidarbha region to sanctuaries

Maharashtra government is planning to relocate tigers from Vidarbha region to the sanctuaries elsewhere where their population is smaller, including the Sahyadri Tiger Reserve (STR). State forest minister Sudhir Mungantiwar told the Legislative Assembly that the government had set up a committee to examine this issue, and a decision will be taken based on its recommendations. 
The STR, located in the Sahyadri ranges in western Maharashtra, has only seven tigers at present. The forest minister said that the government is considering relocating the tigers in sanctuaries in Vidarbha to other places. He informed house that the government has set up a committee to examine trans-location proposal. It will also consult experts from the Centre and submit its report in 2-3 months. He also said that most deaths of tigers happen due to territorial fights owing to over-population.
