Wrong Tiger trapped in Corbett

January 10, 2011

The forest department made another goof up when they trapped wrong Tiger in the Satpuli range of Corbett Tiger Reserve. The department lured a male tiger instead of the man-eater female tigress they have been after. The tigress is to be trapped as she has allegedly turned into a man-eater, making three causalities till Dec 29, 2010.

Alas, this poor male tiger got lured into trap for buffalo meat. He had to suffer for several hours as he had to be tranquilized just because the forest department goofed up. That is not fair.

The forest department must – in a hurry – trap the tigress before she is killed by the villagers. The custom of poisoning a man-eating tiger is prevalent since centuries. And it’s in the best interest of the forest department that they trap the Tigress, find out why she turned into a man-eater and look ways to mend it. She may either be kept in an animal care center or be relocated where she has abundant prey. The point is – find the exact cause and act logically.
