The epic journey of a Bengal tiger into territory where Asiatic lions live is truly impressive and ultimately tragic but one of hope too. The young tiger in his prime travelled a distance of 186 miles looking for his own patch being observed by wildlife officers tracking his journey. Leaving his birthplace where 34 other Bengal tigers live he headed towards another reserve where tigers had been extinct for at least 34 years. Ultimately he died of starvation although it was at first thought he had been poached. It's sad he died but the story is also one of hope that if he made it that far other tigers may follow in his footsteps.
