Angry villagers kill tiger in Bangladesh
Saturday 12th January 2002
Angry villagers in Bangladesh have trapped a tiger with fishing nets and beat it to death.
It came after the animal attacked and wounded a young man.
The aging tiger was foraged into the fishing village of Sardarpara from the forest, and attacked a young man who was walking to the local market.
As word spread, a mob of dozens of fishermen rushed to rescue the man and beat the tiger with wooden oars and iron rods.
The wounded man was taken to the hospital with a bleeding arm.
Bangladesh does not have a figure on the tiger population of the forest, which is shared by Bangladesh and India. But foraging tigers killed at least a dozen Bangladeshis in the past year, authorities said.
