Deaths due to tiger attacks in Maharashtra go up by 1600%


Share post:


During the last three years, 106 deaths were caused due to tiger attacks around the country, out of which 80 took place in Maharashtra alone. Out of these 80, 50 people were made prey in the Chandrapur district, and the Brahmapuri forest area lies in Chandrapur. As per numbers, there were 350 tigers in Maharashtra in 2021, which went up to 400 in 2022, which was a 12% increase, and in the meanwhile, the people dying of tiger attacks increased from 5 to 80, which shows a jump of 1600%.

The major reason behind the same is that the number of tigers is increasing more than the capacity of the forest, and that is why, they are moving out, and are attacking people working on fields nearby. Earlier, the tigers used to breed in 2.5 years, and now, they are breeding in 1.3 years. Earlier, 1 out of the 4 cubs born together used to survive, and now, all the four survive.

Brahmapuri forest department officers have said that earlier, there was only one attacking tiger in the forest area, which was caught and moved to some place else. On the other hand, village-men have stated that there were three tigers, out of whom only one was displaced.
