Gurgaon: The three-year-old tiger (ST-2302) made its presence felt on Sunday by mauling a forest guard in Rewari’s Bhatsana. It strayed from Sariska Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan last Wednesday and reached the Aravalis in Rewari after a 125km trek. The guard, who suffered injuries, is at Civil Hospital in Rewari.
Before Bhatsana, the tiger’s pugmarks were spotted on Sunday early morning in Ninganiyanwas village, which is 22km from Nandrampur Bass village in Rewari, where its pugmarks were found on Saturday.Wildlife officials spotted its pugmarks outside the boundaries of Sariska last Wednesday and then in Alwar.
The tiger had attacked a farmer at Sukh Kheda village near the Rajasthan-Haryana border town of Bhiwadi around 2pm on Thursday.
“Forest guard Hiralal was attacked by the tiger when he along with a team was searching for it in the mustard fields in Rewari’s Bhatsana village on Sunday morning. Hiralal suffered minor injuries. The tiger panicked after seeing the search team. It didn’t attack the forest guard intentionally. The animal fled immediately after that. The team is still searching for it in the mustard fields. We have cordoned off the area now,” Rewari divisional forest officer Deepak Patil said, adding that the department has deployed an earthmover in which doctors and forest staffers are mounted for them to have a good view of the big cat that’s hiding in the fields, and then tranquilise it. The tiger has not preyed on any animal in the area. Around six live baits have been placed at different locations in the area, but the tiger has not made an attempt to have them.
“As the animal is constantly on the move, it is not trying to hunt for food. We have not installed any camera traps so far,” he added. Earlier, the department had deployed a drone to track the tiger.
A buffalo calf and goats have been placed in cages to trap the animal at a few locations by the wildlife and forest department officials. Residents of Bhatsana, Ninganiyanwas, Nandrampur bass, Kharkhara and areas around Sahibi river have been asked to stay at home between 5pm and 7am.
MS Mallik, additional principal chief conservator of forest, south Haryana, said, “The big cat is on the move and it hasn’t killed anything so far. We are planning to tranquilise it and take it back to Sariska as the area where it is currently on the prowl is very close to the human territory. It increases the chances of man-animal conflicts.”
