Tigress Kajri, aged about 19 years, passed away in the Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoological Park in Lucknow due to ill health. Kajri had been an inmate of the city zoo since May 2019 after being shifted from Pilibhit Tiger Reserve and was its oldest big cat. After proper examination, it was found that the tigress had lost its ability to see partially and the sharpness of its teeth due to ageing. The tigress was given special care by serving tender meat and soft bedding in its enclosure.
