Oh No, this is so sad, I was under the impression that when they had a rogue tiger they try to trap it and move it into the deep jungle. An AK 47 is a most inaccurate gun, not suitable for accurate hunting. I so hope that it was not the beautiful boy we saw at Bijrani. I am surprised at the knee jerk reaction, it is so bad for the tourism and the local economy when this sort of thing happens.

Forest department is equipped with AK - 47 but not with a tranquilizer, this sounds really depressing. Even Leopards are getting killed one almost every week.

Ronak.

This seems so sad, and strange really when there is such effort to protect the wildlife. I would be interested to hear Ramesh's view on what has happened.

I think Ramesh would like to get his hands on an AK-47 to sort out some of his visitors.
He has paid out for some peoples permits and accommodations inside the park, and they never showed. He only took a small deposit which never covered his outlay. They could'nt even be bothered to tell him they were changing their plans.
This happened a couple of weeks ago with some people from Canada, and now again yesterday with some Scots.
These B*#@ards are taking a lot of money from his causes, and he is furious. Not for himself, but for the orphans he supports and the schoolkids he helps. Some people eh ?
He does so much for everyone and thats how they reward him.

If I know Ramesh he will be as mad about the tigers as he is about the cash. I despair of some people, You are correct Fugly he trys so hard to help everyone. I keep telling him to not be so trusting of people that he does not know. He will pay out in full for someone that he knows which has proved useful to me before now.

It is ironic that its usually the purchaser that gets ripped off.

HareKrishna you need to check out post #19 before its too late for permits and trains

You provided a wonderful illustrated report of a most exciting safari. Tigers, elephants, dhole, some yellow throated martens, crocodiles, swimming sambar, spotted deer, and a nice variety of birds. Everybody will want to go to Corbett now.

HareKrishna I think Tigerman intended for you to visit this website for your permits and accommodations.

Do contact Ramesh http://tigersincorbett.wetpaint.com

He will sort it all for you very reasonably.

Thanks so much for the complimentary post atravelynn. I do hope it will encourage people to visit Corbett, it is the most amazing place and Ramesh deserves credit as he made the trip for us. We met other people who had booked through travel operators and saw comparatively little wildlife and no tiger sightings.

We understand that the tiger we watched on our first day ( see profile pic), the closest sighting, was the tiger known as Khali! No wonder we thought he was big, certainly all the others we saw were much smaller.

Khali is the Alfa male at Corbett.
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

He is and I gather he is very dominant, he was certainly in prime condition when we saw him.

This is an amazing write up. I love it. I want to go to Corbett and have been discouraged by everyone saying how impossible it is to see tiger there. It seems you have had a great time with good sightings and good guides. This is really encouraging. I live in the NCR and so its not far for us to go to Corbett.

Would you care to share the guides number/contacts? also costs for jeeps, Dhikala room etc?

Another thing i wanted to ask you is how do you put pix in between the text. I have not figured that out yet! Ha!

Your post looks so cool! Really nice reading. If you would care to read about Lions in GIr I have a trip report posted recently.
