Forest Department gives “Capture or Kill” order against Tiger for killing two men in two months

Following two deaths in Bangalore’s Bandipur, a ” Capture or Kill” order has been issued against a tiger. According to a note given by the Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests said that the Tiger would be captured in the next one or two days.

The note read “It was discussed with The Principal Chief Conservator Forest (Wildlife) and Chief Wildlife Warden regarding the killing of a villager by a tiger in Chowdenahalli Handipura village of Bandipur Tiger Reserve after which it is decided that the elusive tiger will be either captured or shot down within next 24-48 hours. The cooperation of the public in this regard is highly solicited”. The order came after an incident on Tuesday, in which 80 years old farmer Shivalingappa was mauled to death by a tiger.

This is the second incident since the last month. The residents of Handipur (a location that falls under the range of the Bandipur Tiger Reserve) were angered. In the month of September, a man called Shivamadaiah was killed by a tiger. At this instant, the forest department officials set up traps and cameras, to track the tiger. Visuals from the camera revealed that the tiger is a healthy one and seen moving very quickly. However, there have been doubts that whether the killings were by the same tiger or not. Also, in that locality, 3 or 4 tigers fight for the same territory. And, due to the “Kill or Capture order”, som activists in Bangalore are planning to protest, demanding to just capture the tiger and only at worst to tranquilize.
