Two strayed Orang NP tigers saved in India

A tiger from Orang National Park (in Udalguri district of Assam in India)strayed out of the park through southern boundary on the night of October 10. After crossing Brahmaputra it had reached Hama Char area and killed two cows and two buffaloes there.It needs mention that there had already been another tiger in the area which too had been strayed out of the Orang NP.Total seven nos of cattle had been killed last week and eleven in the month by both the tigers.According to S.K.Daila,DFO,Orang NP,forest officials had immediately arrived in the char village and paid compensation to the affected families.But according to him the trend of tigers straying out of orang NP had been worrisome both for the villagers as well as forest officials.He further said that at least two tigers would have been poisoned to death by the irate villagers,had compensations been not paid in time.To mitigate the conflict,joint vigilance parties had been formed for affected areas, who would watch movement of the tigers in night time,the DFO said.
