Against the backdrop of four tigers being found dead in Goa's Mahadayi Sanctuary over the past few days due to suspected poisoning, the state government on Tuesday said ex-gratia would be given immediately to those losing livestock to wildlife attacks. Carcasses of a tigress and her cub were recovered from the sanctuary on Wednesday last week, days after her two other cubs were found dead nearby.
