Trapped Bandipur tiger

Officials of Bandipur National Park trap tigress


A tigress, which was seen with a snare entangled in its neck in Kerala has been trapped in the Gundre Range of Bandipur Tiger Reserve here, Forest officials said on Monday.
The Karnataka Forest Department officials successfully trapped the injured tigress. It fell into a cage at Gundre as the staff had kept meat inside on Sunday.

Forest officials said that it is illegal to capture a wild tiger within the core forest area. But the Department officials decided to trap it as the snare had endangered its life.

Also, the tigress had injured three Department staffers in Kerala including a Forest Ranger when they tried to capture it after firing a dart.
