    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, https://ibnlive.in.com/news/tiger-kills-pregnant-cow-in-kodagu-district/200389-60-115.html , 1st para, second line.

    Another source – https://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 fb page where you have put that information. But it mentions no source.

    I doubt it. She would have not been able to kill so many if she was maimed like that. Maybe one of the reason she killed so many was because the villagers were burying the carcass immediately. https://www.newkerala.com/news/2011/worldnews-95220.html As far i can recall, till now there has been not a single incident of the tigers turning into man-eater in Coorg. I dread that day is not far, now that the space for the animals is shrinking rapidly. Lot of conflicting reports and rumors around. Got to wait and watch how this turn out to be.

    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 loss, human encroachment, and loss of prey species (not forgetting poaching etc etc etc) . Every is screaming about saving the tigers, however when you try to, walls and obstacles are put up, and in country very little is ‘saving’ of anything is evident. I love India, however it is heartbreaking.

    Where are you on FB? Am I ‘friends’ with you, I cant find you.

    Sorry, let me clarify. This time around, there have been maulings and one definite kill.

    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 in one night, i actually find that hard to believe.

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