Tiger kills rhino in Dudhwa Tiger Reserve 


A six-year-old rhino was attacked and killed by a tiger in Dudhwa Tiger Reserve, its deputy director said here today. "The park authorities came to know of the rhino killing by a tiger, when its partially eaten carcass was recovered near Salukapur," Ganesh Bhat, DTR deputy director, said. This is the second incident of a tiger attack on an adult rhino, he said. Earlier, a tiger had attacked and injured a female rhino in Dudhwa.

Tigress killing a deer in Ranthambore National Park

Machali hunts down a Sambar using near by vehicles as cover.
We can see how big and tall Machali is next to humans and SUV.








RE: Tiger Predation - Pckts - 06-19-2014

There is another vid of a tigress using a truck as cover for a failed hunt. It seems as they get more used to humans they start to take advantage and learn to use them to their advantage.
Little side note, that is a good sized deer that machli takes down fast. I wonder when this was shot?

Regarding Machali's hunt, Im not sure when this was shot.

But you can check this blog for more info

RE: Tiger Predation - Pckts - 06-20-2014

I believe you're right, Apollo. I think the other one was T17, Ill try to find it.
Thanks for the write up on machli, what a amazing big cat she is. 18years old and still making kills. No canines, tons of battles, many litters and yet she still survives. Quite impressive.


RE: Tiger Predation - Pckts - 06-20-2014

RE: Tiger Predation - Pckts - 06-20-2014

At Dudhwa, rhino births no cause to celebrate  

Atiq Khan

Lucknow, August 9:    While the recent birth of two rhinoceros calves at the Dudhwa national park, about 155 kilometres from here, may be an occasion to celebrate, it has compounded the problems for the park authorities.    

First, the rhino rehabilitation area in the park is overcrowded, with 20 rhinos billetted in the 20 square kilometre area. Second, ever since a rhino calf was killed by a tiger — Dudhwa is famous for its tiger reserve — last year, the park authorities have their hands full trying to provide adequate protection to the new-borns.   

"The rearing of calves is critical in the rehabilitation of rhinos as they are easy prey for the carnivores," admitted Mohd Ahsan, chief wildlife warden of the State.   

The two new additions to the rhino population were sired by Banke, the rhino bull, and given birth to by Raj Rani and Swamvara on July 26 and July 31. At present they are housed in separated barricaded enclosures, as the forest rangers, aided by three elephants, keep a close vigil on the movement of tigers.    

The rhino area in Dudhwa was set up in 1987 after four rhinos from the Kaziranga national park in Assam were rehabilitated here. Though the four original rhinos have died, the Dudhwa rhino rehabilitation project, with its present population of 20 - four males, 11 females and five calves including the two born last month — is one of the success stories in wildlife conservation.    

At the start of the project, rhinos had almost vanished from the wilds of Uttar Pradesh. Besides Kaziranga, Dudhwa is the only other area in the country where rhinos can be found in their natural habitat.    

To safeguard the calves, and also to reduce the pressure on the reserve area, the State Forest Department had earlier moved a proposal to shift some of the rhinos to another area within Dudhwa.    

"Bhadital, which is about 20 kilometres from the present location, has been selected as an alternative site for the satellite population of the rhinos," confirmed the chief wildlife warden. According to Ahsan, Bhadital is also spread over 20 a square kilometre area. "The rhinos will be moved to their new home once the green signal is given by the State and Central Governments," he added.
