Lucknow, Apr 25 (ANI): Forest officials on Wednesday captured a tiger which strayed into the Central Institute of Subtropical Horticulture (CISH) premises located 25 km away from Lucknow .

Secretary, forest department, Ajay Verma told mediapersons here that they were able to capture the tiger without causing any harm to any person, cattle or property.

"The tiger which was straying in the area has not caused harm to any person, cattle or damaged property. This is our biggest achievement. The forest department had trapped it inside a 27square kilometer area by placing a bait. The animal has not been harmed as we run a project for the conservation of tigers. The tiger has been tranquilized without causing any harm to it," said Verma.

The five-year-old feline, which had strayed into the institute in January, measured eight feet in length and had managed to deceive the officials of the forest department for the past four months.

"The tiger was first noticed on January 8 in this area. It is presumed that this tiger had entered our Horticulture institute on January 6, 2012 and since then he has been roaming in this area," said Dr. Rakesh Singh, a veterinary doctor.

The tiger has been sent to the Dudhwa reserve situated on the Indo-Nepal border in the Lakhimpur-Kheri district in Uttar Pradesh. (ANI)
