A tiger killed a man in a village adjoining a forest area in Pilibhit district of Uttar Pradesh, an official said Thursday.

The partially eaten body of Bulakiram, 55, was recovered Wednesday evening from the fields on the outskirts of Akora village, which is near Deuriya area of the Pilibhit forest reserve.

‘Pugmarks found at the site indicate that the man was attacked by a male, adult tiger,’ said Divisional Forest Officer V.K. Singh.

‘Significantly, the Deuriya area of the forest reserve is not considered as tigers’ territory. Field investigations carried out following the incident now indicate that two tigers are present in Deuriya,’ Singh told IANS over telephone from Pilibhit, some 250 km from Lucknow.

Bulakiram had left his house Tuesday to collect wood and had been missing since then.

It’s the third such incident in the district in the last two months.

As per the last census, Pilibhit forest reserve was home to 36 tigers.
