    It’s really horrible news from the park. She is coming out form the park frequently last 15 days. In this month, she came out from the park third time. First time, she was sighted at the wall of park when she killed a cow near the VIP hotels or Private partner (one of the important part of PPP Model that was launched in the new session) Second time, she was spotted from Ganesh dham to Hailpaid. Now it was third time. So, the question raised why tiger prefer to come again and again in private-partnership- zones . From the last 5 years, history of Ranthambore proved it. At least one tiger always found in this area. For instance, Great Machhali took her last breath in this area. So, it is quite clear that in the private partner-ship zones, there is going something wrong due to the hotels' activities. That's why an innocent tigress prefers to come again n again. It is time, the conservators of hotel must think of it and make a space for them and shift their hotels from right edge of the park.
