    A good move. Let the tigers enjoy their home without human intrusion. What about the zoo. Are they planning to free the tigers from Zoo. First of all why we need a zoo? Now days we have access to TV and we can see them in NG or discovery channel. I expect court to ban all zoo's in this country. Animal have the right to live in forest. Don't jail them for fun of humans.

    It is indeed a good move after all those in-famous moves.
    We may need to have a separate section to have threads only on supreme court orders. :D

    Is it a crime to take vada from a banned reserved forest canteen? When I look back to sunfilm order It should be.

    Its a very good decision. Looking at the way these areas were commercially exploited over the past 4-5 years, I am happy that such a decision has been taken.

    Actually, the ban is only in the CORE Areas of the reserve, we can continue to do safari's in the BUFFER Areas.

    And of all the sightings, about 40% or so does happen in the outer reaches of the reserve - the buffer area. That way, the core areas wil be secure and we can manage to sight a few of these majestic beasts - more likely in densely populated forests like Jim Corbett, Ranthambore etc..Hope my guess holds good here!
