A study has found that the tigers of mountain lions are shifting to California. The conclusion was drawn after having analyzed the movement and the activities of the tigers. It is believed that the tigers are migrating because of safety concerns.
In the mountains of Nevada, the tigers are hunted. But, in California hunting of the tiger isn’t in vogue. Besides, area surrounded with greenery is yet another cause behind tigers migrating from Nevada. Jon Beckmann of the Wildlife Conservation Society said, “We predicted we would have more lions coming in from California. We were surprised the Sierra itself was a net importer”.
It has come to light that in California about 4,000 to 6,000 cougars lives as compared to just 3,000 in Nevada. The findings of the study have been published in the pages of Molecular Ecology. The study was conducted by using genetics to identify distinct populations of mountain lions in both states.
Wildlife Conservation Society, the Reno and the Nevada Department of Wildlife and Nevada University worked together for the study and concluded it. The aim of the study was to find the place that is most liked by the animals while migrating.
