Man-eating tiger caught

Indian villagers have captured a man-eating tiger after it mauled six people.

The tiger became a maneater after escaping from the Pilibhit Tiger Reserve in Uttar Pradesh. After it killed a night watchman, locals formed a search party. They flattened sugarcane crops to make way for forest rangers riding elephants, who shot it with a tranquiliser dart.

Villagers clashed with officials when the animal was put in a cage to be taken to Lucknow Zoo.
