Angul: After two failed attempts to tranquilise and capture the Royal Bengal tigress Sundari in the last 24 hours, the 6-member team of experts has launched third phase operation at Satkosia Tiger Reserve (STR) in Angul district on Wednesday.
According to available information, Sundari was spotted at a hill near Baghamunda village today. While a team has gone up to the hill in order to track the big cat, another team has been deployed around the hills, said a source.
Earlier last night, the six-member team of experts from Bhubaneswar who reached Kumuri village failed at two attempts to tranquilise Royal Bengal tigress Sundari .
According to sources, despite tracking the tigress with the use of GPS, she managed to give a slip to the forest officials.
