Corbett man-eater Tigress shot at

January 11, 2011

Within hours of making her last human kill the Corbett tigress has been shot upon by the forest officials. The tigress has sustained a bullet shot on her but didn’t die immediately. She ran away into the forest and the forest plus the hunters’ party is tracking the Tigress to hunt her down and kill her. The chance of her survival is low as the team is determined to kill this ill-fated Tigress.

Another wildlife management surprise unfolds after the forest department wilts against the human demands. The forest department was under immense pressure from the villagers to kill the tigress. Ideally they should have trapped the Tigress and should have devised a plan on how to manage the future of the Tigress. Apparently, a cage was set few days ago to trap her but a different male Tiger got trapped accidentally.

The report almost means that another VERY PRECIOUS Tiger is less from the forests on Uttarakhand and India. In other words – humans have killed another one.

This is sad news and another dark day in the life & times of Tiger.
