The video of the tiger that was rescued by Tamil Nadu forest department was posted on Twitter.
A video posted by IAS officer Supriya Sahu on Twitter has created a chatter among people and left them smiling. The clip shows a tiger that was rescued a few months back and is currently ready to go back into the wild. There is a chance that the video will leave you with a smile.
“He was only about 5 months old when #TNForesters found him with injuries roaming alone in a tea estate. He wasn’t sent to a Zoo, but cared for a life in the wild at Anamalai Tiger Reserve. Today this little big boy of 12 months has been released in a large enclosure for rewilding,” she wrote while posting the video.
Coined in the beginning of 1990, rewilding is a practice that aims at returning areas of land to their natural state, reports a blog by Oxford University Press. Through the process, the return of fauna and flora that were previously driven out of the areas is also encouraged.
The video opens to show a huge enclosure filled with green glass and place for water. The tiger is seen leisurely roaming around the place.
