Maneater of Maharashtra hunted down

A six year-old tigress that killed 13 people in western India has been shot.

A forestry department patrol team staked out a track after receiving reports of the tigress’s presence.

They fired a tranquilliser dart at the animal. It charged the patrol’s vehicle and was killed by a single shot from a distance of between eight and 10 metres (26-33 ft), say forestry officials in a statement.
