Elephants join tiger search in Bandipura Tiger Sanctuary

Times of India, Delhi, 26th July 2014

 

Forest officials on Saturday continued their search for a tiger which recently attacked a shepherd on the fringes of Bandipura Tiger Sanctuary (BTS). On day two of the operation, two trained elephants were pressed into service to find the big cat. Two more elephants are expected to join the operation on Saturday. "Our intention is to disturb the animal, if any, in the vicinity so that it won't come to the same place again," BTS director H C Kantharaju said, adding: "We will continue the operation for some more days." Meanwhile, the condition of shepherd Prasanna Kumar is stable.
