i was furtunate enough to found the follow-up story of this photo..



EXTRAORDINARY: Leopard attacking man in Kerala, India.
These are government agents called for 'pest control' as leopard has been found living on someone's home.
As you see rangers wear bike helmets and steel plated armor to counter balance a potential attack of large cats in India.
This is a camera surprised moment before rangers decided to shoot the animal mauling their coleague.
Rangers have very modest equipment, training and wages in India.



One out of three have not got a helmet - and he gets that big cat on his back
poor guy!

A tiger attacked forest rangers in Kaziranga National Park while trying to tranquilize the animal, in the north-east of India, in 2004.
The tiger jumped on the elephant and mauled the 'mahout' (elephant driver)

This is one of the most incredible videos demonstrating the shear power of a cat I have ever seen.

this canine was picked up and alleged to be that of a tiger

can anyone confirm or deny that this tooth is a specimen of a tiger?
[look at that thick and strong root!]

brickburn,i agree..

And that boys and girls is why they invented the howdah pistol.
(a howdah is that thing you ride in on back of an elephant)
A howdah pistol is to scrape tigers off your elephant.

Howdah Hunter pistols for sale, historical Howdah Hunter pistols by Pedersoli.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Many thanks for re formatting my article for the forum

I served my time in both the bush and during the bush war

I hope it did it justice

Education is where it is at - without it the wild places are history

You - sir - are well placed to make a difference
