Ranchi: Enthused by Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's gesture to 'adopt' a tigress, the authorities at Birsa Zoological Park are hoping cricket captain and Ranchi boy M.S. Dhoni will do the same.
"We are going to write a letter in a day or two to Dhoni requesting him to adopt a tiger named Sugriv. Dhoni is from here and internationally acclaimed. If he adopts a tiger, then it will help in conservation and protection of wildlife, particularly tigers," P.K. Verma, director of Birsa Zoological Park, told IANS.
If someone adopts an animal at the zoo, he or she is responsible for its upkeep.
