To capture the troublesome RT-1 tiger which has been creating havoc among the people for the past many month’s Forest Department has come up with an old and unique technique to capture the RT-1 tiger by deploying one tranquilising expert and veterinarian inside a cage near the bait to trap the beast.
The department is using all old and new methods to capture the tiger and this method is also one of them. Clearing the air on confusion over the method, the senior forest officials said, though the technique is unique, it was adopted in the past too.
Forest officials informed that the tiger never visits the same hunting spot twice and is also aware of the machan. The officials have a single target to tranquilise the beast in the jungle. The shooter and veterinary doctor sat in the cage near the bait (a goat) so that they can fire the dart on the tiger from close range. The technique has been used many times in the past to capture the beast in the jungle under Central Chanda Division.
Three teams have already been formed to capture the troublesome tigerunderArvindMundhe, Deputy Conservator of Forest, Central Chanda Division.
