TIRUNELVELI: Two men sustained injuries when they were trying to chase a tiger at Rosiniyapuram near Vallioor on Saturday. On April 20, Krishnan, a shepherd of Thalavaipuram, was killed by a wild animal and the next day the animal hunted down two cows in the area. It came to be known that it was a tiger.


In an attempt to chase the tiger into the forest, a group of people from Panagudi and Thalavaipuram went in search of it in Kanimarathoppu on Saturday.


When they started bursting crackers, the tiger that was hiding in a bush pounced towards P Azhagudoss (35) of Thalavaipuram and forest guard Kandhaiah, in which both sustained minor injuries. They were immediately given first aid and rushed to a private hospital.


Forest department officials are engaged in a search operation to avoid further untoward incidents and to catch the tiger alive soon.
