park rangers are des­per­ately try­ing to kill or cap­ture a “man-eat­ing” tiger blamed for killing four peo­ple in cen­tral In­dia, a forestry of­fi­cial said.

The two-year-old fe­male tiger was cap­tured in July af­ter killing two vil­lagers and in­jur­ing four oth­ers in Brahma­puri in Ma­ha­rash­tra state. It was later re­leased into the nearby Bor Wildlife Sanc­tu­ary but went on to at­tack and kill an­other two peo­ple. Its lat­est vic­tim, a woman, died ear­lier this week. Rishikesh Ran­jan, field direc­tor of Pench Tiger Re­serve said a court had ap­proved a shoot-to-kill or­der against the ti­gress. (AFP)
