A Royal Bengal Tiger was found dead on Monday afternoon after it had eaten a lizard at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Safari Park in Gazipur.

The big cat, one of four born together in the park, stopped eating and became drowsy after it had eaten a large monitor lizard some days ago, the park’s Acting Supervisor Md Tobibur Rahman told on Friday.
