According to Photographer:
Quote:On the 27th of May throughout a night safari we had spotted Noor otherwise known as T-39 at a waterhole in phutakhot . The scene was quiet and nobody would have anticipated the incident which happened in front of us. The individuals who have gone to RTR would realize that phutkhot is similar to a crate gulch with a tight shake filled valley encompassed by close vertical cliffs. On one of these precipices sambhar were brushing quietly totally ignorant of the tigress sitting at the waterhole. One of them had gotten the attention of the tigress & then she gradually began her stealthy methodology towards the sambhar. As of right now we chose to once again off and situated ourselves something like 40 meters from her between two trees to have the capacity to envision the exposed sun splashed cliff...all this time she was covered up behind the tree as she gradually approached the edge of the precipice. At that point all heck broke lose...she began her vintage pursue up the mound towards the sambhar...we saw her darting between the trees & lost her temporarily...but to our fortunes her target made a sudden 180 degree turn and began to once-over the precipice between the tress. T-39 made progress quickly and could put a bad habit like grasp with her canines on the scruff of the sambhar...was fit to get this shot as she bit into the sambhar...the sambhar was bleating out and her eyes in the shot give the declaration of complete anguish and helplessness....note that in the event that she had lost her toehold, both she and her exploited person would have fallen about 30-40 feet into the rock filled stream below...for the following 90-minutes we were favored to see her drag her kill to the little waterway, extinguish her thirst and afterward attack the prey.

And they are wrong to do it.
This is the tigers world, we are intruders. To expect a wild animal with millions of years of preprogrammed killer instincts to just stop and not attack easy prey is absurd. The gov't needs to reimburse villagers and that is that. Any villager who poisons a Tiger should be punished the same way as a poacher. It is disgusting that they do that.

Tiger kills leopardess in TATR buffer  


A leopardess was killed in the fight with a tiger over a kill near Alizanja village in Khadsangi range in buffer zone of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve. The carcass of two-and-half-year old leopardess was recovered in the reserve forest area near village pond on Saturday morning.  

"We have recovered a kill of wild boar and pug marks of both tiger and leopard at the scene. There were injury marks on neck and back of the killed leopardess, which suggest that the young beast was killed in the fight with higher feline," said in-charge RFO, Khadsangi range, Rahul Sorte. 

Speaking to TOI, he explained that leopardess could have killed the wild boar and while it was devouring it, the tiger attacked the young beast to snatch its prey. The fight between the two predators led to the death of weaker feline. Sorte overruled the chances of poaching claiming that carcass was fresh and all its body parts were intact.  

Earlier the local beat guard during his routine patrol discovered the carcass of the leopard. A team led by RFO Sorte later searched the area and discovered the wild boar kill and pug marks of tiger and leopard to deduce the inference.  

The veterinary doctors summoned from Chimur carried out post mortem at the spot. Deputy director (buffer), TATR, Gajendra Narwane visited the scene. Later in the evening, the leopardess was cremated at the same place in presence of witnesses and forest officials.

I partially agree. Yet, one has to remember we've done similar if not worse as we sit in our technology filled spaces, just in a more indirect way. The space is sit in right now typing this message was taken from bears and cougars, etc. and the food I eat is tied to poisoning of freshwater systems. In the end, humans are for humans, understandably so, and the future of wildlife is very bleak. 
I just hope nothing happens to this great male.

At least behind my computer I am not actively poisoning a animal that is vital to the preservation of us and many other species. I am creating interest with all of you, bringing forth information and data that will help us as people and help the animals we love. Yes our land was taken from these animals, but that was long before the knowledge and resources we have now. We don't need fossil fuels to survive, solar energy is plenty for every human that will ever exist, we don't need skyscrappers, we need green brush and trees to produce clean oxygen and clean our solar system, animal bones are not some magic cure, there are actual PROVEN medications that produce far better results etc.
These ideas where not popular during the industrial revolution and we are paying the price now. The past is the past, but that means we must learn from all of these mistakes and help these animals the same as us. Backward thinking villagers who still view tigers as "pests" and take part in a "eye for a eye" mentality even though a tiger killing a cattle is the same to the tiger as a tiger killing a Gaur in the tigers eyes, and why should we think that a tiger knows "right and wrong" which is nothing to a tiger, because a tiger doesn't live by human "values" and nor should it, but humans do know, and anybody poisoning a innocent animal is wrong,  that is it.
Also, I think while wild life is struggling, I think more and more people are beggining to realize the need to preserve and protect these animals. I am optimistic that maybe in the next 100 years we will begin to see more and more resergence of once struggling animals.
Sorry for the rant, but its obviously a touchy subject.

Awesome tiger pride there! The cubs the same age? If so then the males are so much bigger than those females, if thats what they are. Great family photo, if they have survived this far, they should have a better chance surviving longer. [img]images/smilies/heart.gif[/img]
