UP villagers run tractor over tigress after fatal attack on man

Villagers in northern India have crushed a tigress to death with a tractor after she killed a man.

Forest officer Kahavir Kaujlagi said Monday the villagers encircled the animal and, when the big cat tried to escape, the villagers crushed her under the wheels of a tractor. Ramesh Pandey, field director DTR, has spoken with senior police officials of the zone and directed them to take action against the villagers involved in the killing of the tigress in the reserve's core area. 50-year-old Devanand, succumbed to his injuries, who the villagers said was attacked by the tigress on Sunday morning.

Forest department officials say the tigress has never attacked people in the last 10 years.

Wildlife officials said for months they had planned on capturing the tigress, but it had attacked its trackers even after being hit by tranquiliser darts. Officials said the tiger had evaded capture at least four times and had terrified inhabitants living near vast swaths of forest where it mauled herders and farmers, along with cows, goats and horses.

Turnovers costly in Vikings’ 30-20 loss to Saints
Last season, the Saints began to experiment with third-string quarterback Taysom Hill's versatility by letting him cover kicks. Cousins, 29, is playing his first season with a new team after six seasons in Washington, the last three as the starter.

The six named and various unidentified accused were booked under sections 147 (rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapon), 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty), 342 (wrongful confinement) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC, as well as various sections of the Wildlife Protection Act. "The tigress had attacked the victim, who was trespassing the forest area, which is an offence", Pandey said.

The human conflict with tigers has gradually increased since the 1970s, when India started a tiger conservation program that carved out sanctuaries in national parks and made it a crime to kill a big cat.

According to the 2014 censure India's campaign to boost its tiger population had been successful with their numbers increasing from around 1,500 to over 2,200.
