The carcass of a lioness believed to be around five or six years old was found from a lake in Alidar village of Junagadh'sKodinartaluka.

Sources said that villagers noticed the carcass floating in Pinchli lake on Saturday and immediately informed forest department officials.

The lioness was removed from the lake by forest department team.

Officials said that the body was bloated and it is believed that the lioness may have died few days ago. It is also likely that it may have been swept away in the local river in Jamwala area of Gir which was flooded due to incessant downpour last week.

The body was sent for postmortem at Sasan and the samples of its viscera were sent to forensic science laboratory (FSL).

Sources added that the tongue hanging out of the mouth indicates chances that the lioness may have not died a natural death.

But the exact reasons will be known only after the FSL and postmortem report, they added.
