A tigress recently attacked and killed a man inside the Bandipur Tiger Reserve in the State of Karnataka India..
Hanumantha Nayaka, 50, of Bairambadi village on Calicut Road, paid with his life for disturbing and provoking a tigress in a ravine in Karnataka- Bandipur Tiger Reserve he entered presumably to collect firewood on 13th March 2010.
Deputy Conservator of Forests Dr K Hanumanthappa, Bandipur Tiger Reserve, feels that Hanumantha Nayaka must have veered off the fire track in the core area, four kilometres inside the demarcation line, into a deep ravine to collect bamboo poles. It is an isolated incident caused perhaps by extreme provocation, he says.
An autopsy conducted by chief physician Dr Jagadeesh and chief medical officer Dr R Srinivas at the Gundlupet General Hospital in Chamrajnagar reveals that Nayaka died of internal hemorrhage, shock and trauma. The forest officials say that the big puncture marks on the throat indicate instant strangulation.
The tigress tore off the right forearm, dislocated his wrist, right elbow, shoulder and collar bones; 5th to 10th rib bones on the right were missing, as was the right lung. Stomach entrails gouged out. The large intestine and the small intestine were pulled out. The entire pelvic cavity dislocated; penis, and buttocks eaten. The right thigh was eaten with the bone still clinging to the torso.

Labelling this cat as a man eater is harsh......, apart from the fact, that in this case it ate a human as is clearly visible,...... It just proves again that as a human you are on the bottom of the food chain Baby!!!!!!
That is without a rifle in your hands of course, as in some cases that will even out the odds a little.
My best always.
Do you know of any records of LT Colonel Bill Shannahan ? He lived in Jhansi in the 1920s and 30s and is supposed to have killed a few man eaters. He also hunted with Jim Corbett.
His son, also Bill, is still alive aged 82 and shot his first tiger, a man eater , aged 15.
I am trying to put together his memoirs for his family.
Any help much appreciated.
Hi Tony ,
Just give me some time my friend , shall research & gather information on him & his life in India for you shortly ......
