  • In a rare occurrence, pug marks of a tiger have been reported from Paonta Sahib, about half a km away from Simbalbara National Park.
  • Wildlife officials are suspecting that the tiger may have crossed over from Rajaji National Park.
  • The wildlife officials are, however, not sure whether the tiger has returned or is still around Simbalbara National Park.
  • The DFO said a tiger venturing out from the Rajaji habitat complex to a habitat around Simbalbara National Park was a great sign for both places. “It indicates the success of attempts to conserve tigers and its habitats. Normally, a tiger moves out from its original habitat to adjoining areas when its population rises and the competition increases,” .
  • For Simbalbara National Park, the arrival of a tiger will boost its biodiversity and eco-tourism.
    • Simbalbara National Park is located in the Paonta Sahib Valley of Sirmour District, Himachal Pradesh, along its border with Haryana. It is also known as Col. Sher Jung National Park.
