Man-eating tiger in Karnataka reserve captured

Bengaluru : The man-eating tiger, which was at large for five days, was captured in Karnataka’s Bandipur forest on Sunday, an official said.

“The tiger was captured late in the afternoon with the help of Soliga tribals, who spotted it hiding in a bush,” state Chief Wildlife Warden Sanjay Mohan, who was supervising operations from outside the forest, told IANS over phone.

The tiger, aged 4 to 6 years, had killed two men since last month and a search was on for the animal since October 9 in the 872km Bandipur forest in the state’s Chamarajanagar district, about 220 km southwest of Bengaluru.
