Jaipur, Jul 6 (UNI) Encouraged by normal behaviour and activities in new environment in Sariska and the tiger relocated from Ranthambhore on June 28, the Wildlife authorities are now contemplating releasing the big cat from its enclosure into wild jungle.

However, another big cat -- a four-year-old tigress -- brought to Sariska from Ranthambhore National park on July 4, has to stay in its enclosure for some more days, a wildlife department official said.

He said both the animals were trying to adjust to the new environment in this tiger reserve, which had no tigers for the past over four years.

He said, '' We are satisfied with their behaviour, particularly that of the tiger which had now been acquainted well with the surroundings.

Two deer were yesterday released in an enclosure of both the animals.

The Male tiger had been more active in its enclosure and seen roaming around the tigress, whereas it had preferred to rest behind the bush cover.

The enclosures are opposite to each other, hardly 20 m away, and the animals have already noticed each other's presence.
