Tigers eat flat of other animals in the forest. Generally tigers do not kill tigers. They only like the flesh of other animals. But an old tiger or a wondered tiger can not run fast. At such times it can only catch people. People can not run as fast as animals. Therefore they become easy prey to tigers and other animals. After eating human flesh once, a tiger will get no other flesh. Such a tiger is called a man-eater.
Once a tiger in a jungle in Uttar Pradesh in India turned a man-eater. It had killed women and men in the forest. These people had gone into the forest to fetch firewood, fruits, roots and other things. After such incidents people stopped going into the forest.
Then the man-eater started visiting the villages quite often. It killed people or domestic animals. The villages became panicky. The concerned government wanted to do something. It requested Jim Corbett to help the villagers. He agreed to track down the man-eater.
Jim Corbett was an expert Hunter, he had developed a lot of experience with tigers and other wild animals. He was a lover of wild life. He didn't like to kill wild animals for pleasure or sport. Buh he had not hesitated to kill man-eater. This was only to help the people in trouble.
He arrived at the village with his rifle, this rifle was a powerful one. It could kill big and powerful animals like the lion, the tiger and elephant. He had collected all the information regarding the man-eater, he then select a place. The tiger use to come there often. He built a platform, this platform was fixed on a high branch. A young buffalo was tied to the nearby tree. He waited all night, but the tiger didn't come, perhaps it had scented hiding man and his powerful.
He then changed his plan. He went back to the village. After that the tiger came, it killed the buffalo and dragged the dead buffalo into the jungle. The villagers told Jim Corbett the news. He went into the forest in search of the tiger, at last he reached the place. He climbed a tree to find out the tiger. The tiger had eaten a portion of the dead body of the buffalo, it was lying at a distance.
Slowly and consciously he followed the track, he then finds the tiger resting after a good meal. At first, he hesitated to shoot a sleeping tiger. But then this is not a good tiger, It was a man-eater. With this thought in mind, he sents two bullets into the sleeping tigers head. The tiger died at once, the villagers were happy
Jim Corbett was rewarded for his bravery.
