Forest officials look out for injured tiger
Kotdwara: Forest officials are on the
lookout for a tiger that was supposedly injured in a fight
with another big cat in Kalagarh reserve here as it might now
hunt humans for easy prey.
Forest parties are patrolling the region to find the
injured tiger, as it could start killing humans if it becomes
too weak to hunt its natural prey, District Forest Officer,
Kalagarh Tiger Reserve, Surendra Kumar said.
The body of a dead tiger was reportedly found in the
reserve near Corbett National Park, leading officials to
believe that a fight had ensued with another big cat, possibly
grievously injuring it.
Pug marks of another big cat were found near the body of
the dead tiger, but there was no blood, Director of Corbett
National Park Ranjan Kumar Mishra said.
Therefore it could be assumed that the other tiger was
not grievously injured and might have moved to another region,
"But we will keep vigil for the supposedly injured
tiger," he added.
