Mangaluru: The Pilikula Biological Park (PBP) on Monday, October 26 wore a gloomy look as it lost one of its star attraction, 21-year-old tiger Vikram, due to age-related issues, zoo officials said.

Speaking with this regard PBP director, H Jayaprakash Bhandari said, “The tiger was under treatment for nearly two months as it was suffering from age-related issues such as blindness, arthritis and renal failure.”

It is gathered that Vikram had stopped consuming food for the last one week due to health issues, however, he was on drips and on antibiotic, but he could not respond to medical treatment and succumbed at 5 am on Monday.

The tiger had sired 10 cubs in its entire life span and were named Kadamba, Krishna, Oliver, Akshaya, Manju, Amar, Akbar, Anthony, and Nisha.
