India: Why Tigers are Killing People?


Reportedly, Tigers are killing people in India, and the number of events has surged recently.

A tiger accused of slashing and killing three citizens in India will now spend the remainder of its lifetime in prison, Indian authorities said Sunday, saying the enormous feline was “excessively hazardous” to be permitted to meander aimlessly. 

The five-year-old male predator, additionally accused of assaulting dairy cattle, had set out on a trek in excess of 500 kilometers (310 miles) in length from western Maharashtra state to focal India’s Betul locale in Madhya Pradesh state in 2018. 

“We gave it a few opportunities to re-wild yet it routinely went into human homes,” Madhya Pradesh’s chief wildlife superintendent, S.K. Mandal stated. 

“There was a final choice left to send  it in imprisonment to ensure both the tiger and people’s life protection.” 

The decision to capture the enormous feline and keep it in imprisonment was taken by authorities two months ago, but implementation was delayed due to pandemic.

At long last, the tiger was tranquilized and sent to a zoo in Madhya Pradesh capital’s Bhopal on Saturday. 

Authorities said the choice to catch the grown-up tiger was taken a couple of months prior, however, it was postponed because of the novel coronavirus lockdown nationwide. 

“It will take some time for him to become familiar with the new habitat. We will screen his conduct,” Bhopal’s Van Vihar National Park chief, Kamalika Mohanta said. 

” Now it will stay in isolation and decision will be taken later whether it is to put in a display at the zoo or take it to a (fenced) safari.” 

In India, with 1.3 billion people, the human population has been increasingly reaching the territory of big cats, leading to a deadly confrontation with wildlife. 

As per the official data, about 225 individuals were killed in tiger assaults somewhere in the range of 2014 and 2019. 

More than 200 tigers were killed by poachers or electric shock somewhere in the range of 2012 and 2018, the information emerged. 

Around 70 percent of the world’s tigers roam in India. A year ago, the authorities said the big cat population had surged to 2,967 in 2018 from a reported low of 1,411 in 2006.
