Hunt on for Tiger, after Killing Eight

Indian authorities are hunting for a tiger which has killed eight people in the last two years after another fatal attack, officials said Wednesday.

The big cat’s latest victim, an elderly villager, was mauled to death late Monday when he ventured into a forest for firewood in Khambada, around 660 kilometres (410 miles) from the financial capital Mumbai.

“We have been trying to capture the tiger using tranquillizer darts but with no success,” N.R. Praveen, a forest official in Maharashtra state, told AFP.
