Chotanagpur plateau northern parts in Jharkhand are like 400 kilometres away from Deccan Plateau. And, Dehradun being a valley or not is in North India. Look up Kaimur Wildlife sanctuary in Bihar. That is nowhere near Deccan Plateau.

This picture is from Bhimbhand wildlife sanctuary next to Ganges in Bihar.


And, this is Valmiki

Tiger hunts world’s largest bovine in Thailand

''Some incredible tiger news from Thailand, where rare camera trap footage has captured an adult resident male and it’s huge prey – the first time WWF observed this directly in Mae Wong National Park.

A wild gaur, known to be the world’s largest bovine, was found dead in Mae Wong National Park in late December last year. The marking on the gaur carcass revealed claw marks on its side and bite marks on the throat. But it wasn’t until WWF placed camera traps in the same spot that we were able to finally confirm that a tiger killed the gaur. This is a rare and important find.

The research team was delighted to confirm its identity as MKM8, a male tiger they have been tracking since 2014. “MK” refers to him being a resident of Mae Wong-Klong Lan National Parks, and “M” represents his gender.

“It is rare to capture a tiger killing a gaur on camera. Even for tigers, killing a gaur is not an easy task,” said Dr.Rungnapa Phoonjampa, WWF-Thailand’s Mae Wong and Klong Lan Project Manager

By monitoring the carcass, we discovered that MKM8 came to feed over a period of about two weeks. This indicates the importance of large ungulate prey such as gaur and sambar for tigers because one kill can provide so much food. Our Tiger Recovery Project is trying to increase these large ungulates through patrolling, community outreach, and habitat improvement (creating saltlick and grassland).

What’s even more remarkable is that Mae Wong National Park is not the tiger’s first home. He was born in Huai Kha Khaeng Wildlife Sanctuary, further south. We first captured him on camera in Mae Wong in 2014 and he has been a resident in this park since then. ''

The main natural enemy of the Himalayan bear in the Usurian forests is a tiger. The habitats of these species in the southern Far East coincide, which forces the bear to adapt to a dangerous neighbourhood.

Winter in tree hollows is an important adaptation that increases its viability in such conditions. However, if the entrance to the hollow is too low, near the roots of the tree, a tiger can kill the careless owner of the dens.
Once a positive experience, the tigers begin to systematically check wood dens with low entry in search of mining.
Video 1-tiger examines the den (bear under such asylum construction is not available as the bed is located at the bottom of the barrel).
Video 2-tiger examines the entrance to the den, located in close proximity to the lung. A year earlier, a young bear was killed and eaten here.
