Hunt for man-eating Indian tigers

Last updated at 18:19 GMT, Monday, 19 January 2009

Wildlife wardens in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh are hunting three tigers that have killed eight people since November.

Teams mounted on elephants have been ordered to shoot one of the tigers and chase two others back into the forest.

Hundreds of thousands of people are living in fear, a BBC reporter says.

Forest officials say conservation work has boosted tiger numbers in India but human settlement is increasingly limiting the animals’ natural habitat.
