NTCA on bore size of gun

Mid Day - - City -

The SOP of NTCA to deal with an emer­gency aris­ing due to stray­ing of tigers in hu­man dom­i­nated land­scapes says that the Chief Wildlife War­den of the State should record in writ­ing the rea­sons for declar­ing the tiger as a ‘man-eater’. It also men­tions the bore size of the firearm to be used to kill the an­i­mal. It says, after ‘declar­ing’ the man-eater, it should be elim­i­nated by de­part­men­tal per­son­nel hav­ing the de­sired pro­fi­ciency, while pro­vid­ing a firearm with the ap­pro­pri­ate bore size (not be­low .375 mag­num). In case such ex­per­tise is not avail­able within the depart­ment, an ex­pert may be co-opted from other state gov­ern­ments or out­side with due au­tho­ri­sa­tion.
