Aizawl, Feb 28: Tiger census began today in Mizoram along with the rest of the country.

Forest officials today stated that the tiger census would be carried out in Dampa tiger reserve, Phawngpui national park, Murlen national park and Tawi, Lengteng, Khawnglung, Thorang, Pualreng and Ngengpui wildlife sancturaries.

The census would be done in a phased manner and was likely to be completed by next month, officials said.

The officials informed that tiger counting at Dampa tiger reserve, which falls near the international border, could be delayed as the tigers often move into Bangladesh and Tripura forest areas.

However, they did not mention the current population of tigers in the state.
