Pain and fear and horror! Who ARE these people that they are capable of such nightmares? I always thought India had better animal sense than most countries....what is the human race coming to that this could have happened in the 21st century? Absolutely horrifying and sick!! The poor poor tigress who had to endure such brutality.....and what a magnificent animal who only wanted to live her life!
And then I think of the baby harp seals, the bears in cages for bear bile, the millions of dogs and cats and monkeys and bunnies being used in labs....the wild mustangs being herded to their deaths, the magnificent wolves gunned down, and hunted animals and caged animals, the pets being eaten in asia, the bulls tortured in fights,,.........and on and on and on.....how depressing is the human race, and how sick and cruel we can be as a species.
When will this all change???????

this is so sad. More awareness is needed. There are so few tigers left in this world and this was a female that could have helped the population growth. :-(

What a very sad and disturbing thing to happen to any living thing.
How could they be happy doing this horrid stuff to anything!!!!!!!!!
Goes to show how bad mob mentality can be for everyone and everything.
It's sad that these disturbed people will not pay for what they did to the tigress.

Six hours !!!!! they should be stoned for six hours.This poor tiger was just trying to survive by taking the livestock since all places she hunted has been destroyed by these people.She probably only attacked because she had been tormented by the same morons that stoned her.

I hope that mob burns in hell. GOD created these beautiful creatures and loved them or he wouldn't have built an ark. To make something suffer that long and to have hurt like she did. I would rather be around animals than most people. That is so sad. It breaks my heart.

It is hard to imagine people so uncivilized that they would participate in and cheer the cruel, tortuous death of such a majestic creature. The animal was just following its instincts - there was no malice, unlike the people who ended her life. The government should have severe punishments for people who commit these atrocities. .I guess you would expect that from people who condone setting women on fire for "family honoe".

This makes me feel sick. Sure, eating cattle and hurting people are definitely not good at all, but the animal could have easily been tranquilized and moved to another location, or even into a zoo or sanctuary. 6 hours? Seriously?! I thought humans were no longer barbaric enough to do something like this.

Is it any wonder why I have so little respect for most of the human species? Every day I feel anger and hatred because of the things that happen due to ignorance and lack of caring. I can not tell you what a toll it takes on my life knowing that these things go on everywhere. People are afraid of animals and yet we are animals also except we really are dangerous and too often cruel. I did not read the article, the headline was enough for me. I feel only anger and depression because of things like this. I know there are so many people on this site who care yet we are always swimming upstream and there are never enough of us. What a horrid thing to happen to this tigress who had no idea why she was being attacked by the scum who did this to her. I don't know if there is enough bad karma for people like them. I am often glad I don't have a gun because of the anger I feel towards people.

Noted with tears in my eyes,just heartbreaking to think of this beautiful tigress's brutal death at the hands of EVIL HUMANS!!! How she must have suffered,i can't bear to think of the way she died,horrific! These people have taken the animals homes and land so what are they to do,Tigers and wild animals have to eat just like the rest of us,humans kill millions of animals for food and are they stoned to death,NO.So what gives us humans the right to kill poor defenceless animals who are doing what comes naturally to them in finding food.Very upsetting and to think we are suppose to be saving the beautiful Tiger from extinction!!! The more i know about the human race the more i love all animals,it angers me what humans are capable of!!!!!!!! Well said Sally M and Kate Kenner,i feel the same as you do.R.I.P BEAUTIFUL TIGRESS,you can never ever be hurt again,always in my heart,bless you.Thank you.Liz Xx

The same should be done to these ignorant people, but what else should we expect from such ignorant people. They are the real animals and should be stoned. Let the punishment fit the crime, i hope god takes vengence on them! God bless these poor animals who fall victim to stupid ignorant people with no heart or compassion. I hope they get what they deserve..... Makes me sad.

NEANDERTHALS. Very sad commentary on these people and this nation -
this is the nation tha mahatma gandhi came from. His people have not followed his teachings of non-violence.India is very violent with animals of all kinds. How sad, how sad.

"The villagers of Aamgaon Bagrutola pounded a tigress for six hours and, when the bloodied animal collapsed in a heap, let out a delirious cry."

Stoning an animal to death is barbaric as is stoning a human being as it is done in other parts of
the world. Disgusting behavior on the part of these paople.

The tiger should have been tranquilized and moved to another location.TY. Asiatic.

six hours of ongoing torture. I hope she got a chance to sink a tooth in a couple of them. Same mentality with setting uppity wives on fire. May Kali have fast and harsh revenge on these cowards! Karma happens and it sure wont be good.

I don't think a day goes by without depressing news of animal cruelty and those are the stories that are published - I just don't understand the psyche of people who are so barbaric and who lack compassion for beautiful creatures who are supposed to live on this planet with us, but some populaces are hell bent on eradicating them.

So sad and so despicable that humans nowdays can still feel "victorious" over a helpless animal. To be truely "human" is to rise above such things and view our "lesser" creatures with compasion rather than hate and vengence.

Horrible! poor tiger and ignorant people! This should not be allowed killing of our animals. The villagers should be charge for killing this tiger. They should not taken matter into their hands, they were on the tigers habitat. So is the humans that are a problem not the tigers. Learn to live with them or move!!!! You guys will live with hes death, what kind of humana are you guys! heartless.......

I cannot believe how ignorant and sick in the head those bastards are. To torture that beautiful tigress for 6 hours for fun, that is criminal and unforgivable!!!! Cowards. Castrate the lot of them, that will give tigers more living space. Blame also goes to the authorities for doing nothing at all to protect the tigers, they just sit on their fat arses. SHAME INDIA!!!!!!

Obviously the Indian government and their Forest service needs to do a lot more education. It's understandable that ignorant villagers who have lost stock want the tigress dead, and do not possess any equipment more lethal than stone throwing ability. Some positive action should have been taken to have avoided an endangered species of animal being tortured to death.

These people are !@#$%^& SAVAGES! I hope they will be stoned to death for 6 torturous hours. SICKENING! There are TOO MANY people on the planet. I am grateful everyday that I have not added to the population and will leave no one behind when I pass. No one else to be a parasite on this once amazing Eden - jewel in the Universe.
