MUMBAI: Another tiger attack has been reported from Talodhi, where a supposed maneater had been shot dead by sharpshooters on November 30.
 
A 30-year-old woman, Rekha Govind Meshram, of Navargaon village was found dead inside a forest, where she had gone to collect firewood.
 
The divisional forest officer, Brahmapuri Hrishi-kesh Ranjan, said, "Pug marks around her body and wounds on the body confirm an attack by a tiger."
 
This comes close on the heels of the killing of a youth Tanaji Raut from Navtala village by a tiger.
 
Meanwhile, a leopard was found dead on the Nagpur-Chandrapur road at 7pm on Saturday. The leopard's body has been sent for a post-mortem as the cause of death could not be ascertained.
