MYSURU: A day after an injured tigress was rescued by the forest department at Hediyala forest range in Bandipur Tiger Reserve Forest, department officials caught another tigress in Antharsanthe village of HD Kote taluk on Tuesday.

Antharsanthe villagers had complained to the Forest Department after they saw a tigress killing a cow a couple of days ago. On Monday, the forest set up a cage to catch the tigress, but they failed.

On Tuesday, over 50 forest personnel started operations with the help of tamed elephants Abhimanyu, Arjuna and Kirshna. According to the forest officials, the tigress was tranquilized in a field by the veterinary doctor who was sitting on the elephant Abhimanyu around 5.30 pm. It was an herculean task to rescue the tigress as nearly 1,000 villagers had gathered to see the the process of capturing the big cat.
The forest officials have not decided whether to free the tiger in some forest or to send it to Mysuru Zoo.
