Tiger tourism at village Atkona

News of the day Thebuckstopper

Get ready for . A tiger from the Pilbhit reserve wandered into the village Atkona, 20 km from the reserve. The beast was seen resting on the boundary wall of a farmer's house and the walls of Gurdwara unfettered by the growing crowd gathered to see the tiger. This is, however, not a new scene in District Pilbhit where tigers often enter villages adjoining the reserve. Such ‘tiger tourism‘ is commonplace here.

According to villagers, a tiger came into the village on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday. It sat atop the wall of a farmer Shindu Singh. People woke up to the barking of stray dogs and then saw the wild cat squatting on the wall.

The officials of the forest department are there on the spot to rescue the big cat. People from neighbouring villages came to watch how a tiger tours their ‘habitat'.
