India calls off hunt for man-eating tiger
LUCKNOW, India (AP) — India has called off its hunt for a man-eating tiger after six weeks with no reports of a new killing.
The tiger has killed at least nine people since late December, eluding a team of hunters in Uttar Pradesh state who set out on foot to kill the animal. A tiger killed a 10th person on Feb. 9, but forestry officials cannot confirm whether it was the same animal.
Wildlife Warden Rupak De said Monday that the hunt was called off earlier this month, but wildlife officials are still trying to track the animal using drones as well as 50 cameras installed in villages around the tiger reserve.
