Bhubaneswar: Roshan, a 17-year-old tiger of Nandankanan Zoological Park, died today.
The big cat was seriously ill and under intensive care and treatment. The animal was being treated by veterinary doctors as it was suffering from old age ailments and paralysis. Currently, the zoo has 27 tigers.
Roshan was born to Ram and Sriya in 2002. At the age of only 18 months, the big cat was affected with trypanosomiasis, which led to complete loss of eyesight.
