Poachers kill protected tigers: official (All of them)
A FEDERAL probe into disappearing tigers in a state-protected reserve has found the entire population of big cats has been wiped out by poachers, a minister announced today.

"The special investigation team in its preliminary assessment report has indicated that there was no evidence to prove the presence of tigers in Sariska (national park)," junior Forest Minister Namo Narain Meena said.

"The entire population seemed to have become extinct primarily because of poaching," Mr Meena told parliament's upper house.

The reserve covers 800sq km in Rajasthan state and has blue bulls, spotted deer, boar, and above all, 15 tigers, according to a census in June 2004.

Media reports that since January none of the tigers had been spotted sparked the probe.
