20 Rhino calves were killed by tigers on year (2008)   


OUR CORRESPONDENT  Dergaon, Dec. 28: The carcass of a rhino that had stayed from Kaziranga National Park a few days ago was dug out today from a farmer’s backyard some 25km away.    

Apart from the horn, poachers have taken away the tail, nails and ears of the female rhino, suspected to have been killed nearly three days back. The carcass bore two bullet marks.    

This is the first time that a rhino has been buried in a pit after being killed.   

Though the farmer, Gobendra Pegu, was interrogated about the carcass, the police refused to divulge further details.   

“Three rhinos had strayed out of the park on Thursday. While one came back, there was no news of the other two. The carcass of one was recovered today,” the director of the park, Surendra Buragohain, said.  With one more rhino still outside the park, forest officials fear that poachers may also target this animal.   

Buragohain said forest rangers try to keep a watch on the rhinos, which stray out of the park, but it is difficult to follow these animals all the time.    

A forest official said police and forest personnel launched a joint operation today following specific information that a rhino was shot dead by poachers a few days back.    

“After launching a search, we found marks of newly dug earth in the backyard of a house. After digging up the yard, we found the carcass, which has still not decomposed,” a forest official said.  Carbide was used to quicken the decomposition process in the seven-foot deep pit.   

Robin Saikia, the veterinarian who conducted the post-mortem, estimated that the rhino was killed nearly 72 hours ago.   

 A source said a group of poachers was seen in Bonkowal near the park a few days ago and forest guards with the help of the police were conducting joint operations in the area since they received the information.   

This is the tenth rhino falling prey to poachers this year. While seven rhinos were killed inside the park, three were killed outside.   

Apart from these, 53 rhinos died because of natural causes and 20 calves were killed by tigers this year.

Elephant Killed by a Tiger in Corbett reserve 

An elephant was found dead at Dhela range of the Corbett Tiger Reserve apparently killed by a tiger, forest officials said today. 15-year-old tusker's hind portion was badly mauled when its body was found during a routine patrol yesterday, they said. "It is understood that some fight took place between a tiger and the elephant which resulted in the latter's death," said an official of the tiger reserve, adding a post-mortem was being conducted.

Same report from another news media. 

Tiger kills tusker at Corbett   

According to national park field director Ranjan Kumar Mishra, park staff on patrol discovered a tiger eating the body of a tusker in the Dhela range of Corbett on Sunday noon. The pachyderm is estimated to have been about 15 years in age and had tusks about two feet long.   

The tiger is believed to have attacked the pachyderm from the rear and after climbing atop the beast, is thought to have inflicted severe wounds on its rear and head. Apart from the back and head, the hind legs of the pachyderm had deep wounds and the ears of the elephant had been eaten. Considering the wounds on the elephant and the condition of the location where the body was found, the pachyderm is believed to have struggled hard against the tiger before being finally killed, added Mishra.

Always amazing when hearing about the capabilities of tigers. Lone tiger killing a 15 year old tusker is quite impressive but not unheard of. TFS

Tell me about it. Till this day, we have one actual hunt and kill on a Guar. Just one, we have a couple gaur kills in process but none other than rajas from begining to end.
Tigers are just to secretive and the habitat is just to dense with brush to be able to watch a hunt take place.
Even the famous picture sequence of a big Sloth Bear standing on hind legs looking at Waghdohs cub, then waghdoh sees it, stands up, then supposedly chased the bear into the brush, they heard screams, then silence, but still couldn't even see it because of the brush.
Its just so hard to view these cats, which is probably why we love them so much.

Frank Leslie's popular monthly, Volume 45, 1879,

53, 55, & 57 Park Place. p. 411   

Elephants are very fearful of tigers, and always show more or less alarm when in their vicinity. I have known many an elephant to turn tail and run away when near the tiger's lair, and sometimes all the efforts of the mahout failed to check them. Not infrequently they run under the limbs of trees in their flight, and the howdah and its occupants  are brushed off.  

Major R , of Lucknow, was killed in this way during a tiger-hunt in the Pumeah district. A tiger charged his elephant, and the latter ran away. As it passed under a tree the howdah was swept off, and the major and his servant were both killed by the fall.   

When in the neighborhood of a tiger the elephant generally holds his trunk high in the air, as it is his most vulnerable point, and he is anxious to protect it from injury. In a fight with a tiger the elephant uses his trunk very little, through fear of injury, but endeavors to trample his enemy under foot or pierce him with his tusks. Once let an elephant get his heavy foot fairly on a tiger, and the fight is soon over; it is all up with the yellow-coated thief -or, rather, it is all down with him. But in the majority of fights between them, the tiger generally gets the best of it, or would do so, if man did not come to the elephant's aid. In one of our hunts in the northeast we had one elephant killed by a tiger-or, rather, he was so badly hurt that he died the next day-and another very severely wounded. Even the elephant's thick hide cannot resist the tiger's claws; and as for his teeth, they have been known to make an impression on a plate of iron.

Hey guys, just wanted to tell you that I got a documentary (german), which contains a part, where they speak about Gaur and their interaction with tigers. They filmed a male tiger lying next to his gaur kill. They say it´s an adult Gaur but are not specific about the sex. PM me and I can give you the links. Filmed in the Satpura National Park. Not HDTV!

Some screens
