Mother Nature: trying to kill you 24/7

And, sooner or later, one way or another, she'll do it.
A Bengal tiger bounded from a creek bank and sunk its teeth into a man on a fishing boat in eastern India.

The tiger then yanked the man off the boat and into a creek as his terrified children watched, reports The Times of India.

The incident happened around dawn on Thursday in the Sunderbans National Park.

The man, 62-year-old Sushil Majhi, is presumed dead. His body will likely go unrecovered.
Unless they find some piles of cat poop.

I've read of the Sundarbans region before; bad reputation for man-eaters.  The game rangers in that park travel only in groups, armed and armored.
