Held in tiger death case

By Our Staff Reporter

Udhagamandalam Sept. 16. The main accused in the case relating to the death of a tiger near the Mudumalai Wildlife Sanctuary has been arrested. According to information reaching here, a few days ago a tiger killed a cow near Sigur bordering the sanctuary. Having eaten part of the carcass the same day, it returned to the spot the next day. However, it proved fatal as the carcass had been poisoned.

Following a tip-off, local forest officials on Monday morning arrested Siddhan, Bhojan and Siva, who removed the claws of the dead tiger. After a post-mortem was conducted by forest veterinarians, the animal aged about 10 was buried.

Late in the night, the officials caught Rupesh (19) of Moyar for having allegedly poisoned the carcass of the cow knowing that the tiger would return to eat its prey. The involvement of a couple of more persons in the incident was suspected as the head and teeth of the carnivore are missing.
