A lion cub was found dead in Semardi forest area of the Dalkhaniya forest range in Amreli district.

The incident came to light on Wednesday evening and senior forest officials rushed to the spot. Sources estimate the cub's age at around five months. The cub's body was sent for postmortem to ascertain the cause of the death.

Forest officials suspect infighting between lions to be reason for the cub's death. However, only the postmortem report can confirm the cause of death.

Anshuman Sharma, deputy conservator of forests (Dhari range-west), was not available for comment despite repeated attempts.
