The tigress will be escorted to Lucknow by a team of biologists, doctors, keepers and drivers. Furthermore, the feline will reach the zoo on November 27 after which it will be quarantined for a duration of 15 days.

Presently, the Lucknow zoo houses a white tigress 'Vishakha' and its offspring 'Jay', living in two separate enclosures in the zoo. The new tigress 'Chinki' will be partnered along with Jay after following the quarantine procedure.
