Is there any news on the injured tigress? Fugly have you heard any news? It is so sad as it will hinder so much of the good work that has been done to educate the locals to value the tigers.

I spoke to Ramesh today morning but unfortunately I was not aware of the injured tigress otherwise I would have asked him about her.

It seems my Corbett trip is on the right track. I have asked Ramesh to go ahead with the bookings after he gave me quote which were with in my budget. The plan is to go in second week of April (5 Nights / 6 days), exact dates will be confirmed after getting FRH accommodation. Thanks tripsammy & Fugly for you advice & recommendation.

Ronak.

Hi Guys
I did'nt know if the tiger was male or female, I just heard TIGER.

I just phoned Ramesh to get the lowdown,he says it was a Tigress, it had killed 4 women, and was shot,
but so far they have not found any dead tigers, So ??

Also, he said that there have not been any alarm calls for around 12 days now, in Garjia.

Good for you Ronak, 1 or 2 nights is for sissys.
You will definitely enjoy your Ramesh corbett experience.
Of course, it could rain I suppose ?
Nevermind, we sat in a dripping jeep for around an hour and a half, one day, in torrential rain, and still managed to spot loads, including tigers.
That was a great day out.
Tigers do seem to enjoy the rain. I dare say, it covers their scent and sounds, making hunting easier.

Ronak, I told Ramesh to make your trip a special one,as you are a good friend of mine. He promised he would.

Fugly, Thanks a lot for asking Ramesh to make our trip a special one. It's because of tripsammy & you that we are planning our trip to Corbett otherwise we were thinking of going to Bandhavgarh or Tadoba (repeat trips). Regarding duration of stay in a wild life place we have learned the hard way when we stayed for a night in Corbett during Feb 05 & we thought ourselves as so foolish of not spending more days in such a beautiful place. But then we have learned from our experiences & now we stay for at least 4 - 5 days in a wild life park is not more.

Generally it does not rain in April / May but with the weather behaving like a mad man you never know.

Ronak.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear this, it is such a shame and hinders so much good work that has been done by so many to preserve tigers in the area and educate the local people> Such a shame they couldnt trap them and move them to the inner forest.

shahronakm, I hope you have a great time and I am so pleased you have booked with Ramesh, I am sure you will not be disappointed.

The more sad thing is that first they said that maneater was a female tiger, but then they shot dead a male tiger and now they are saying that he was the maneater and not the female one....
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

You are very correct delhiwala
The words A*#SE & ELBOW come to mind.

I also find it hard to believe that Corbett does'nt have a vet ?
From that I can only assume that none of the other parks do either ?

And would you believe, one of the weapon used to kill the tiger was AK-47 . Indeed it's a most loved weapon of terrorists (of all kind).
