The death of 10 tigers in three months in Kaziranga National Park in Assam has alarmed environmentalists. The tigers were found dead between November 12, 2008, and February 14, 2009. Park authorities suspect some of the tigers might have been poisoned by villagers. Environmentalists suspect poaching could also be the reason.
