I wish them Good Luck with their tiger count, which I think is going to be very hard to do. Some experts warn the methods used are "flawed and obsolete", and may result in even experienced spotters making mistakes, the New Indian Express reports, quoting tiger biologist Ullas Karanth.
Thank for sharing Cher.
