Wildlife groups say 41 tigers have died in India this year

In this Wednesday, June 10, 2015 file photo, a Royal Bengal tiger drags a wild boar after killing it at the Ranthambhore national park in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan, India. Conservationists say at least 41 tigers have died in the first seven months of this year despite awareness campaigns across India to save the big cats.
Six months after India boasted that its tiger population was growing fast, conservationists on Wednesday said 41 big cats had already died this year and worried that the country was not doing enough to save them.
