According to sources, Ramdeo Gudha Madavi (45), a resident of Kajalsar, was grazing his cattle when a tiger suddenly attacked him. Incidentally, the place is only four kilometres away from Navtala, where a shepherd Tanaji Raut was killed by a tiger on December 7. Madavi was taken to a primary health centre in Neri from where he was shifted to Chimur rural hospital for further treatment.
When contacted, Hrishi-kesh Ranjan, deputy conservator of forests (Dy CF), Brahmapuri forest division, said: “It’s still not confirmed whether Madavi has been attacked by a leopard or a tiger. The animal that has attacked the shepherd is a different one as the spot is seven-kilometre away from the earlier tiger’s territory.”
This is the third consecutive attack by the tiger in Navtala area. The tiger had also attacked a 14-year-old girl Amruta Kamdi in the same area on December 6, when she had gone to attend the nature’s call. Surprisingly, the spot where Madavi was attacked is 14 kilometres from the problematic Talodi area.
