Something must be done here as soon as possible to avoid untoward incidents like these which will lead to injuries and even cause death to villagers especially those living near the tiger sanctuary (Sunderban).. these wild animals has instinct to hunt for their prey especially when they are hungry... for this reason we cannot blame the big cats for attacking.... people there and villagers should be well aware of this... and as humans we are given the gift of discerning the best thing we can do to preserve our own lives... there's no reason for them to call these animals as "adam khor" or man-eaters and wanted these animals be destroyed... I hope they should be extra cautious and that National Tiger Conservatory Authority will do something to remedy this...
