The Forest department personnel were successful in capturing another tiger that was spotted at Antharasanthe range, HD Kote taluk, on Tuesday.

The tiger, which was spotted on Monday morning, had created panic among the residents of Antharasanthe village. More than 50 personnel swung into action and caught the two-year-old female tiger on Tuesday afternoon.

The department personnel had captured a male tiger that was injured in a territorial fight at Doddabaragi village near Saragur on Monday. The department had enlisted the services of Dasara elephants Arjuna, Abhimanyu and Krishna for the operation. The search for the big cat went on some time, but in vain. Finally, with the help of a drone camera, the tiger was found feeding on a calf at a field nearby.

The personnel found that the field belonged to one Uday and reached the spot with the help of elephants. The veterinarians, riding one of the elephants, shot a dart to tranquilise the animal. Even after the dart hit it, the tiger started walked for half a kilometre more and lost consciousness later. The personnel then caught the animal using nets.

Speaking to DH, Manikantan, director, Project Tiger, Nagarahole National Park, said, the tiger was healthy. “It will be monitored for a couple of days and a decision on the future course of action will be taken later,” he said.

ACF Poovaiah, RFO Vinay, Special Tiger Protection Force range forest officer Rudresh and veterinarian Dr Santrupt took part in the operation.
