Tigers killing cattle
Panic stricken villagers of Tekadi, located on the border of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve, on Thursday morning tried to tackle a full grown tiger on their own.
Aggrieved by the loss of their cattle killed by tigers, a group of villagers rushed to a tiger and tried to drive away the beast from the kill.
However, timely intervention of local forest officers prevented any untoward incident.
A tiger from TATR killed a bullock on the bank of Irai river close to Tekadi village on Wednesday night.
The beast then dragged its kill to thick shrubs and devoured over it. After villagers learnt about the incident tension gripped the village.
Twelve villagers went out in search of the kill and found the tiger sitting over it.
