She was frostbitten and alone. The hunters took her to the local wildlife inspector who started taking care of her.

Also, there is some good news on the tiger front from our country. India constitutes 70% of the world's total tiger population. There were only 1,400 tigers left in the country in 2005. Now there are 2,226. There has been a 30% increase in the last 4 years.

We need our national animal, the world needs it too. Here's to all those who work towards their protection and conservation. Let's hope the numbers keep going up!
