Divisional Forest Officer  of East Wildlife Division, Dechen Lachungpa, said history has  been created with the first-ever camera footage of a Tiger roaming in the forests of Pangolakha Wildlife Sanctuary in East Sikkim.

    The DFO said the camera captured two images of the tiger on the night of December 6, 2018 – at 6.23 pm and at 7 pm  at an altitude of 9,583 feet. The DFO added that the footage could be a concrete base for  a detailed study on migration of tigers to Sikkim.
