Guard attacked in Bandipur

A forest guard on the beat was attacked by a tiger on the fringes of the Bandipur Tiger Reserve on Friday. Ramu escaped with minor injuries, but is in a state of shock and has been admitted to the K.R. Hospital in Mysuru.

Chief Conservator of Forests Ambadi Madhav, who is also the Bandipur park director, said the tiger may have been pushed out onto the fringes in a territorial fight. However, they have managed to drive the tiger back about 4 km into the jungle. The attack took place near Kallegowdanahalli close to Hangala village.
