The tiger in question has 1 missing canine and 1 broken canine and is quite injured. That is the report coming out about the Kodagu tiger. Can you confirm that the cow that it killed was dragged 10 metres and that the tiger fed upon it? If so, can I have that link, or information. I cant seem to see the green links youre referring to.

Sybelle, check the “Report in IBN” link, http://ibnlive.in.com/news/tiger-kills-pregnant-cow-in-kodagu-district/200389-60-115.html , 1st para, second line. Another source – http://expressbuzz.com/states/karnataka/tiger-kills-pregnant-cow-in-kodagu-district/330945.html I have spoken to some of our sources in Coorg, in the area where the attacks have taken place. They say it is a Tigress. Not a Tiger. Further info right now is that, she has sneaked back into Nagarhole National Park. But villagers expect her to be back. I see you have mentioned about the state of the tigress, 1 missing canine, 1 broken canine. Can you let me know from where you get that information from? . I evened check your… Read more »

There is also doubt that she actually killed as many as has been said. There is acknowledged maulings, but only 1 definite kill. Ive got a friend from UK on the ground in India and going in to find out the truth of the situation. It concerns me a great deal as this tigress has been around (or another one) for a few months now. Even after the report in regard to her injuries, the ‘officials’ stopped the search for her. Ive run into this mentality alot in regard to the Bengals, its like nobody really cares. The massive habit… Read more »

Sybelle, there have been kills. Believe me. I am from Coorg. And am personally in touch with one of the person whose cattle was taken. In fact she on one night in October took down around 5 cattle. And that baffles me a lot. I am happy for her that she has sneaked back into the forest, the villagers were loosing patience and they would have taken the matters in their own hand.
No, i am not on your friends list. I saw your comments on some public event there.

Ok that must have been One World Conservations website. I believe she has taken cattle, but this is where the conflicting information is coming in, plus this has also come from someone on the ground in Coorg. But that is like everything, one person says one thing, another person says another. I am just happy that she is still alive, but terribly concerned that she is on her way back. If she cannot hunt properly, due to the injuries reported, then she will go for the easiest prey. Additionally, it is so highly unusual that she would take 5 cattle… Read more »

Yup, No much news about her. Seems she has been taken to task. Sad.
