Santosh's comment on Tiger trouble: Tigers' threnody and tizzy in Odisha

WHO WILL FEEL THE PAIN OF SUNDARI? WHO WILL PROTECT SUNDARI'S LIFE?? WHY SUDNARI SUFFERS??? Forest Minister Bijoyshree Routray is one of the most learned members in Naveen’s Cabinet, but the way ‘He spoke lies’ on Bargad tiger death it is really shameful. Sundari is not a ‘man-eater’ but the manner in which the State and its forest officials are attempting to capture it is no less than that of the recently-shot Avni in Maharashtra. Four teams are in hot pursuit to tranquilise Sundari and then put it in the Nandankanan Zoo. The Minister has made it apparently clear that the tigress’s place is in the zoo. After Bargad tiger poaching now Sundari’s life is not secure. Even before this in same Satkosia forest as per reports 10 tigers have already killed. Who will protect Sundari’s life is a big question mark? And why Sundari will go to a Zoo that is another question? The National Tiger Conservation Authority (NCTA) has put in place standard operating procedures to deal with emergency arising due to straying of tigers in human dominated landscapes in 2013 vide their notification No. 15-37/2012-NTCA dated 30th Jan 2013. In the Annexure-II of the guidelines for Declaration of Big Cats as ‘Man-eaters’, it states: “A differentiation should be made between ‘human kill’ due to chance encounters and ‘habituated man-eaters’. As most of our forests outside protected areas are right burdened, the probability of chance encounters is very high. Further, tigers often use agriculture fields while hinting for prey or livestock, which may also cause lethal encounters with human beings. Such animals should not be declared as ‘man-eaters’.”
