Rishikesh (Uttarakhand), May 24 (PTI) The Forest Department has removed the ‘man-eater’ label on a tigress who did not target any human being for 55 consecutive days after her last attack. This tigress had killed six people in three months. Officials gave this information.

Between December 21 and March 31, a tigress had hunted six villagers in the Fatehpur range of Ramnagar forest division, after which it was declared a man-eater.

The tigress attacked and killed six villagers in the dense forest of Paniyali, Damuva Dhunga and Bajuria Haldu. Vinod Kumar Singhal, Chief of Forest Force of Uttarakhand (HOF), said that however, this tigress did not go to the human habitation area.

He said efforts were on to nab the tigress so that her health condition could be checked. 50 cameras have been installed in the area to keep a watch on his movements.

Singhal said that the forest department has deployed 120 personnel along the entry routes of about 20 villages near the forest area boundary to prevent the villagers from entering the surrounding forest unnecessarily.
