THRISSUR: The tiger, which had been inflicting horror near Pulpally for the last one month, is now being rehabilitated in the Thrissur Zoo. WWL-127, a male tiger, was trapped in the forest department's cage at Vadanakavala on Tuesday. It was decided to move the tiger to a rehabilitation centre following reports that the tiger, which had lost its teeth, was finding it difficult to catch its prey. This is the third tiger to be transferred to Thrissur.

Earlier, a killer Tiger from Moodkolli and a tiger from Kolagapara in South Wayanad, which were trapped in Wayanad, were shifted to Puthoor. Tiger WWL-127 was caught in camera trap from Nagerhole National Park, Karnataka in 2020-21. Cages were set up in different parts of Pulpally and Mullankolli panchayats to catch the tiger. This tiger ate many domestic animals. The tiger lost its tooth in the attack of another tiger. After this, the hunting was shifted to the inhabited area.

The tiger was trapped in the cage at around 10 pm. After a detailed health check-up at the care centre at Kuppadi, the Chief Wildlife Warden ordered for rehabilitation.
