Please distribute the photograph far and wide so that the powers that be are motivated to do something about this senseless slaughter of tigers.

Another gruesome death of a tiger in the Tadoba landscape

May 2012. A large male tiger was hacked to pieces in the Borda Forest beat, near the town of Chandrapur in Maharashtra. This is the fifth tiger death in the Chandrapur forests this year.

Head and paws removed
The dismembered carcass was found by a forest guard. The head and paws had been removed and there were drag marks around the area. Burn marks on the hind limb of the body indicate that the animal was electrocuted, perhaps at another site and then dumped from a vehicle beside the road. A one lakh cash reward has been offered by the Forest Department and Wildlife Protection Society of India is assisting in the investigation.
