Mahadeshwara sanctuary in Karnataka to be a tiger reserve

Once the hideout of notorious wildlife smuggler Veerappan and seen as an important tiger corridor, the Male Mahadeshwara (MM) Hills Wildlife Sanctuary in Karnataka’s Chamarajanagara district is all set to become the official home of the royal big cats.

The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA) has given in-principle nod for upgrading the sanctuary to the tiger reserve. The State Government has already given approval for its upgradation and now it will have to notify the area to make the region inviolate for the endangered big cats.
