Nepal hunts tiger after deadly attack

The Asian Age, New Delhi, 10 May 2013

 
The Police and wildlife rangers have launched a hunt for a tiger which mauled two people to death on Thursday in Nepal, officials said.

The tiger first killed a 75 year old man when it dragged him out of a hut on the fringes of the Chitwan National Park in central Nepal, police said.

"The old man was living with his daughter in law but she said she didn`t know about the attack. In the morning people saw blood and traced it to the forest, where they found the body,” Superintendent Deepak Kumar Thapa said. Mr Thapa said a 31 year old man then fell victim to the same tiger when he joined a group of villagers trying to hunt it down.

Dozens of policemen and forestry officials have now been sent to the area with a cage to capture the tiger alive
