Tiger population increases in Sathyamangalam forests
"According to recent wildlife census, there are 25 tigers inside the Sathyamangalam reserve forest areas", District Forest Officer N Sathish told PTI here. A large number of wild animals were noticed in Thengumarahatta in the forests as the Moyar River was flowing in the area and water would be available throughout the year, he said.
The Centre had declared Sathyamangalam forest area as Tiger Reserve, he said. He cautioned drivers of vehicles crossing Thengumarahatta road as movement of wild animals was high in the area.
