it has been reported in the times of India that tigers want to dominate the area


please see  http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com   17 Jan  experts,officials voice concern over tiger-jumbo striff in corbett



tigers want to dominate  the area , recently a group of tigers surrounded a 10 yr old elephant for hours killed it, then eat it


they are trying to dominate leopards as well , so they respond by  moving towards villages to get away from the tigers


these are the problems you can get in small reserves

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.

Here´s the link to the article:




Interesting that a "group of Tigers" would attack an Elephant, I can only assume this was a mother with her (older) offspring? Attacking an Elephant calf can´t be all that unusual, Tigers kill full-grown Gaurs at times. 215 Tigers seems a very high number for the NP , I think that would be the highest density for all Indian parks.  Maybe it´s not for the NP alone but the Corbett Tiger Reserve (1288 km², the park itself is 521 km²)., The latest census gave the numbers for the whole state of Uttarakhand with 340 (almost twice as much as in 2006), see here:

I thought that took place in Kaziranga and not Jim Corbett?

I'm not dead if I'm still twitching.

Wow. That clearly was one pissed off tiger. This is not a group trying to intimidate. This tiger seems irritated. Possibly some previous incident?

Lives of great men all remind us
   We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
   Footprints on the sands of time.
