Lucknow The tiger that had strayed into the Barabanki district a few days ago attacked a villager on Thursday.
Hiding in the jungle of Shahpur, around six km on the outskirts of Deva in Barabanki, it attacked the villager when he had taken his cattle to the jungle for grazing. He managed to escape.

“The tiger was trying to hunt and had even chased a calf. But it was unable to make a killing,” Divisional Forest Officer of Barabanki, A P Tripathi, said.

The Forest department has sent a team to the area to catch the tiger.

The pug marks were last reported from Saili Kiratpur village in Barabanki on Tuesday. “W were unable to track the pug marks as the tiger had moved along the Sharda Canal service road. It later reached the Shahpur jungle area,” said Tripathi. The department has sent the cast of the pug marks to the Dudhwa National Park for examination to ensure that it is the same tiger that had strayed from the Park nearly a month ago.

“Only after examining the pug marks, we can ensure that it is the same tiger,” said P P Singh, Deputy Director of Dudhwa National Park.
