And from a couple of links in that story,
Forest workers say they have shot dead a tiger blamed for killing seven people in the past six months in western India.
The tiger, described as a "man-eater" by authorities, killed the victims in a forest in Chandrapur in Maharashtra.
This was the third tiger to be shot dead for killing people in the area since 2007, officials said.

Officials in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh say they have captured a tiger that had killed eight people.
The male tiger was tranquilised and taken to Lucknow Zoo on Thursday evening after a chase lasting several months. Vets are monitoring the animal's behaviour and health.
The tiger claimed his first human in May near the India-Nepal border.
Officials say he was not a typical "man-eater" as he had been killing wild animals as well as humans.
So he was acting more like a leopard, treating people as just one more item on the menu.
