Dhaka – A fisherman was killed by a man-eating Bengal tiger in Bangladesh’s southern Sundarbans forest Monday, officials said. The tiger attacked Bokhso Gazi, 45, deep in the mangrove forest where the fisherman was collecting firewood to cook food for himself and his friends, who were catching fish in the Chunkuri river in south-western district of Sakhira, forester Rezaul Karim said.
Forest guards later recovered the man’s body from the forest.
The Sundarbans, the largest mangrove forest in the world, is home to more than 400 wild tigers.
