KATHMANDU, April 2: Animal lovers staged a protest in front of the WWF office in Baluwatar, expressing their outrage over the deaths of three tigers kept in a cage at the Parsa National Park (PNP).

Protesters carried placards and banners with messages such as 'Stop all forms of animal cruelty' and 'Tigers belong to the wild; not to captivity'.

Two male tigers and one female tiger rescued from Chitwan National Park and Thori of Parsa and brought to PNP died. 

The PNP Administration said the tigers might have died due to illness as they were kept in a single cage that could accommodate only two tigers.

Animal rights activist Sneha Shrestha stated, “Today’s protest drew over 100 concerned individuals, united in their call for accountability and the cessation of practices that endanger the welfare of captive animals.”
