Umaria (MP), Apr 26 (PTI) Three days after two orphaned cubs died of a viral infection in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve (BTR) in Madhya Pradesh, another cub succumbed to the infection this morning, a forest official said.

"After the death of two cubs here on April 23, the third one had been shifted to a different place (within the BTR). But this four-month old cub could not be saved. All three cubs were infected with parvovirus," BTR's Field Director Mridul Pathak said.

The three cubs were found on January 22 this year at Sarwahi village on the periphery of the Sanjay Gandhi Tiger Reserve in the state.

The poachers had killed the mother of the cubs, the officials said.

Later, the three cubs were shifted to Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve to be put in foster care.

Pathak said that BTR management tried its best to save the infected cubs. "This virus generally infects dogs. The doctors from other cities and tiger reserves have tried to save the cubs but they could not be saved," he said.
