CHANDRAPUR: In a first-of-its-kind incident, a forest guard – Swati Dhumane – was killed following a tiger attack in the Kolara range, the core zone of Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) on Saturday. Sources said Maya (T-12), the most popular tigress of Tadoba, was responsible for the attack. Dhumane was on foot with three labourers for the All India Tiger Estimation (AITE) 2022 exercise when the incident took place.
There have been cases of foresters being attacked by carnivores while on duty but all had escaped with injuries. Following Saturday’s incident, Tadoba field director Jitendera Ramgaonkar has suspended the enumeration exercise as well as the movement of tourists in Gypsys in the area.
According to Ramgaonkar, Dhumane and team had started walking around 7 am. After 4 km, they noticed Maya sitting on the road about 200 metres ahead of them. The team waited for around 30 minutes and when the tigress didn’t budge they decided to take a detour through the forest. The tigress then attacked Dhumane and dragged her into the forest. On being informed, senior forest officials reached and traced the body. It was later shifted to Chimur government hospital for post-mortem. Maya’s sudden aggressive behaviour has surprised those who have followed her life.
