Shimla, Feb 22
Presence of a tiger in Himachal Prdesh. The Shimla Wildlife Division has shared this rare good news with Wildlife lovers disclosing presence of the king of the jungle, after successfully tracing it in the state. This was disclosed by the Shimla Wildlife Division Forest Officer Ravi Shankar in a tweet around 17 hours ago on Tuesday.
Posting a rare picture of the traced Tiger on the page they announced “Welcoming the King to our Jungle.
First record of #tiger at #simbalbaraNationalpark and first camera trap image of tiger recorded in #Himachal.
Courtesy regular #wildlife monitoring by our staff led by Range Officer Surender Singh.
” It took about one month to follow the Tiger after it entered Himachal Pradesh from Rajaji National park of Uttrakhand. The research started after the department followed the trail of the same tiger which had entered in a Farmhouse of Himachal Pradesh in the mid of January this year. The Wildlife Division had put up camera traps to intercept its movement in the new or unexplored territory.
Now with capture of picture in the trap camera in Himachal Pradesh it is almost certain that the state has a new wild guest which is healthy and is successfully surviving the new habitat as picture appeared to be of a robost Tiger, freely marching.
On January 23 last month State Wild Life wing had placed camera traps near a Private farmhouse in Poantashaib of Sirmour district where pug mark of the rare guest or tiger were found by Shimla Wild Life team on January 20.
According to  DFO wild life Shimla Ravi Shankar after confirmation of tiger pugmark for the first time in this hill state they did the needful near the farmhouse to trace the animal.
Earlier to this Wild Life Shimla had received a complaint from owner of a farmhouse that rare pug marks were seen inside the premises. It was followed by wild life experts rushing to the spot and sucessfully recreating pug mark from the impressions.  According Wildlife officials it was expected that the new guest ( tiger) entered the state from Rajaji National park of Uttrakhand after crossing yamuna river and countinues staying in adjoining Simbalbara national park of Himachal.
Wild Life Officals also stated that since the level of Yamuna is low enough for the tiger to walk, it may have entered this part of the Nation.
To rule out the fear that it may come back at the same spot camera traps continue to keep a track.
Now new revelation ascertained that new guest ( tiger) entered in the state from Rajaji National park of Uttrakhand crossing farmhouse from yamuna river and countinues staying in the a adjoining  Simbalbara national park of Himachal .
