A Tiger That Killed 13 People Has Been Shot Dead In India


A man-eating tiger that claimed more than a dozen victims in two years has been shot dead in

India, sparking controversy over the legality of its killing. One of India’s most high-profile tiger hunts in decades ended Friday night when the mother of two 10-month old cubs — known to hunters as T1 but Avni to wildlife lovers — was shot dead in the jungles of Maharashtra state. A team of more than 150 people had spent months searching for T1, using a paraglider and dozens of infrared cameras while sharpshooters had ridden on the backs of elephants.

However disputes quickly erupted after the killing as media reports said the tiger was shot in Yavatmal forest with no attempt to tranquilize her. India’s Supreme Court had issued a hunting order for T1 — blamed for 13 deaths since
June 2016 — in September, ruling that she could be killed if tranquilizers failed. Several appeals were made against the death sentence.
The tiger was killed at night, when tranquilizers are not allowed to be used, according to the
Times of India and other media outlets. T1 is said to have been shot dead by Ashgar Ali Khan, son of India’s most famous hunter Nawab Shafath Ali Khan, who was meant to be leading the hunt but was not present Friday night.

Jerryl Banait, a vet and activist in Karnataka state who had launched appeals against the order,
described the shooting as “cold-blooded murder”. “Avni was killed illegally satisfying a hunter’s lust for blood,” said the Indian branch of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) group. It said India’s Wildlife Protection Act and National Tiger Conservation Authority rules had been flouted, calling for the matter to be “investigated and treated as a wildlife crime”.
The tiger’s body has been taken to a zoo in the city of Nagpur for a post-mortem. Despite the disputed circumstances, villages around the town of Pandharkawda celebrated the
death with relief.

@David: Imagine, so the life of the tiger is now higher than that of humans? Even though they are trying to conserve animals, it shouldn't be animals that are threat to life.

@Igboon; I heard the news on Raypower FM Lagos this evening . It's quite sad how lovers turn to enemies to an extent the wife had to commit such grave crime against her own family @Peter & Amobi; Don't mind the "oyibos". It's extreme activism for wild animals
