The animal ate parts of the man’s leg and abdomen before being scared away by villagers waving shovels and metal rods,” - “The Diplomat.com” Victim 1 “Earlier that day, around noon, a 45-year-old irrigation worker was also killed, perhaps by the male tiger, which was also blamed for the death of a woman in January.

SUMMARY In Northern India, there are one or two tigers that have been attacking and eating humans for the past month and a half. This tiger(s) is located near the Jim Corbett National Park. The tiger(s) wait until villagers are near them, usually working in the field, taking cattle on a graze, or just taking a walk, to attack the person and drag them into the forest to eat. When loved ones find the person, all that is left is blood, shoes, fabric, and maybe bones. It is assumed that the tiger(s) attack humans because they are scared or have developed a taste for human flesh.

REFLECTION I sympathize for the people who have lost a loved one and I pray that these tigers will be found and killed so that no one else has to live in fear or will be attacked. I think that God would be upset because He planned for animals to have peace with one another. I can pray for the people in India who lost a loved one because of this vicious tiger. If I were in this situation I would stay indoors, have faith in God and be aware of what’s going on around me. I hope that the villagers in India are doing the same also. I still wonder how this tiger arrived in India and how life is for the villagers in India. I realized and learned that we live in a great country where we don’t have wild tigers running around and attacking me. I am so grateful that I don’t have to worry about being scared to get eaten by a tiger when I leave the house nor worry about my family being harmed either.
