A one-year-old Asiatic lion was found dead at Khamba in the Dhari range of the Gir Wildlife Sanctuary on Friday. Forest officials ruled out any foul play, saying the animal might have died during infighting in a pride.
“Post mortem revealed injury marks around its neck. The injury seemed to be a result of infighting. It was very severe and proved fatal,” said deputy conservator of forest Anshuman Sharma.
