It is no news when you happen to see a tiger in the well known park such as Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Ranthambhore, Tadoba or Corbett. But when you see a tiger in a unknown and unheard wildlife sanctuary namely Udanti, it becomes a news for the entire state. Same thing happened On 12th November, 2006 when I saw a Tiger in Udanti Wildlife Sanctuary in the morning game drive along with a forest guard and my colleagues of the Department. All of a sudden we saw a Tiger resting and it appeared like a log of wood lying on the ground & rushed to the woods awakened by the sound of the Jeep. Since, no one including the Forest Guard expected to see the Tiger, we were not ready to click and missed that Golden opportunity. In fact, no forest official from Chhatisgarh had ever sighted a Tiger in the wild. This was indeed a big news and was carried in all the local newspapers of Chhatisgarh next day. Just after a 20 minutes we observed the fresh pug marks of tiger on the river bed indicating his presence.
