Tiger Attacks in Kaziranga14th November 2011
On Saturday 12th November two villagers were killed by tigers in separate incidents at Kaziranga National Park in Assam . One villager was killed inside the park and another succumbed to his injuries on way to the Jorhat Medical College Hospital. The attacks took place at 1pm and 3pm in different areas. It is not known whether the same tiger was responsible for both attacks.
The park reopened to tourists last week.
"It is always a tragedy when people lose their lives to wildlife," says DSWF CEO, Melanie Shepherd. "It highlights a disconnect between humans and their understanding of wild animals and, more often than not, leads to dangerous reprisals for the animals involved. Poisoned carcasses are often left out for the tiger by grieving villagers and it is rarely the offending tiger that is killed in retaliation. This is a sad event for everyone involved."
