Nagpur : The man-tiger conflict was reported from an entirely new area in Vidarbha with a tigress and her two cubs killing and eating a farmer, eight km from Tipeshwar Sanctuary in Yavatmal district, on Monday afternoon.

Prahlad Madavi (55) was killed when the tigress pounced upon him while he was plucking pulse legumes in his field. Sources said, “The field is about 500 metres from the forest that is contiguous with Tipeshwar Sanctuary, but eight km from the sanctuary border.”

“The tigress was followed by her two cubs, aged about 18 months, and the three literally tore apart the farmer’s body and ate it,” sources added. “The head, legs and hands were severed from the body,” they said.

“The way this happened, it appears the tiger family was very hungry, which in turn could be because of scarce or no preybase in the area,” Central India director of Wildlife Protection Society of India Nitin Desai said.
