A pregnant buffalo narrowly missed death after being attacked by a tiger on Tuesday. The attack took place in the Surla forests at Sattari. While the bovine was grazing in a forest area at Nandrukiche Mal, the tiger chose her as his prey.
This striped hunter had been spotted before prowling on the borders of the Mhadei wildlife sanctuary in Goa. He was seen in the reserve forest of Karnataka in Huland as well. In January, four tigers were killed by poisoning. This tiger was a part of their pack and probably the only survivor. After the tragedy, the majestic animal left Golaulim and entered the Karnataka forest. He killed cattle in Huland. A family from Kankumbi saw him many times.
The pregnant buffalo belongs to Deu Pingale who lives in Surla. He said: “In the morning, my buffalo was attacked and injured by the tiger. Due to the hue and cry by villagers, the tiger disappeared into the forest. When I informed forest officials, they immediately visited the spot and panchanama was done. Today a veterinary doctor also visited and saw the injuries caused to the buffalo.”
