Salvatori Cardoni on yet another reason why India is not on my bucket list.
For the last six weeks, those living in India’s northeast states have been looking over their shoulders whenever they venture outside… a tigress has killed 10 people, eluding determined hunters at every step of its murderous spree.
The tiger has been cornered a number of times.
The day before, hunters cornered the big cat, which has been given the name Mysterious Queen. But it was not enticed by a trap baited with a live cow.
I thought cows were sacred in India? Why is the tiger after people?
Tiger conservationists cannot say with certainty why Mysterious Queen is preying on humans, but one expert surmised it might be because it is simply hungry.
That’s not comforting.
