Man-killer or victim of human interference? Debate rages over Ranthambore tiger’s relocation….

USTAD …. “Man-killer or victim of human interference?”

Great Cats of the "World"


An activist has moved the Delhi high court to save a Ranthambore tiger, better known as Ustad, from losing his freedom over what he says are unproven charges of being a man-killer.

The male tiger believed to have killed four humans was shifted on Saturday from Ranthambore National Park to Sajjangarh Biological Park in Udaipur in a highly secretive move, drawing a sharp rebuke from the country’s highest tiger conservation body for alleged violation of standard operating procedure.

The eight-year-old tiger, officially known as number T-24, will be kept in captivity at Sajjangarh, forest department sources said.

A PIL filed on Ustad’s relocation by a wildlife enthusiast who visits Ranthambore every three months alleged the tiger had been wrongfully accused of being a man-eater without any evidence.
