Karnataka Villagers Rescue Tiger

The Wildlife Conservation Society has commended the village of Nidugumba in Karnataka for saving an injured tiger that became entangled in barbed wire.The villagers prevented the tiger from being harassed until forest rangers and veterinarians arrived and freed the cat.
"Too often, in situations involving a large predator that is accidentally cornered in human-dominated landscapes, people can swiftly form mobs and attack the animal as well as impede forest officials handling the situation," Ullas Karanth, WCS Director for Science - Asia, said.
