Tiger captured in Indian Wayanad


A tiger that triggered panic among local residents in the Ozhakkody, Muthirery and Makkikolly areas near Tavinhal under the North Wayanad forest division was captured from a human settlement on Wednesday morning.

The tiger, aged about 10 years, had triggered panic for the past three days after it killed a cow. Its capture has come as relief to the villagers.

A forest team, led by North Wayanad divisional forest officer Remesh Bishnoy, set up a trap at Vellarippalam on Tuesday and the animal walked into it on Wednesday.
