Tiger decreasing in number
            

     Tigers Need Human Protection : Everywhere in the Country and also in Bengal.

     Tigers are Gradually fading in numbers. They are the awesome beauty of nature.

     Tigers are endangered.Everyday, at least one tiger is being killed by humans for making monetary profits as the flesh and bones of the tigers are highly prized for food and medical purposes. Tigers are killed for their striped silky coats which very much costly. Jim Corbett came to conclude that all tigers are not man-eaters and farmers kill the man eating tigers because they pose threat to livestock and people. One notorious man eating tigress, known as the Champawat Tigress killed some 200 men and women before being driven out of Nepal. She moved to another location, this time in India, and continued to kill, bringing her total up to 436 before she was tracked down and killed in 1911. Similar incidents of tigers killing men occurred in the Sunderbans area. About 100- 250 people have been killed in tigers attacks in the surrounding area of Sunderbans till 2004. Tigers can also attack humans in a case of "mistaken identity" For example, if a human is crouching while collecting firewood, or cutting grass. Man should not provoke their chase. Kenneth Anderson commented on man eating tigers;These animals seem also to possess an astute sixth sense and be able to differentiate between an unarmed human being and an armed man deliberately pursuing them,It is not unnatural that man kills tigers out of his fear for safety. It is true that there are laws that anyone who kills a tiger and gets caught will be charged for poaching and may be imprisoned. The tiger habitats are being destroyed for developing housing complex for humans.

     The Sunderbans National Park is the biggest on its own hunk of tidal halophytic mangrove forest of this planet. It was a habitat of about 600 Bengal tigers in the year 2004, one of the leading on its own tigers population. It is possibly the largest single population of tigers. The kill rate has dropped significantly due to better management techniques and now only about three people lose their lives each year. Despite the notoriety associated with this area, humans are only a supplement to the tiger's diet. But man kills tigers out of panic. as 15 tigers have died in less than two months this year. According to Project Tiger officials, the number of deaths is much higher as compared to the previous year. Most of the deaths have been termed as natural.

     William Blake in his poem The Tyger wrote this famous line Tyger tyger , burning bright/In the forests of the night . But this bright creature with the fearful symmetry is being killed mercilessly all over India. In 2010 alone, 55 tiger deaths were reported (38 mortalities and 17 seizures) from across the country.The consolation for Uttar Pradesh is that of the 15 deaths, none have been reported from the state.Out of the 17 tiger states, deaths have been reported from nine. According to the MoEF, Uttarakhand has topped the chart with four tiger deaths reported between January 5 and February 19 this year. Three deaths took place in Corbett Tiger Reserve and one in West Terai Forest Division. The West Bengal government has taken swift and unprecedented action by transferring three top forest officials after the death of a full-grown Royal Bengal Tiger within the Sundarban Tiger Reserve. The action followed a preliminary report given by the States Criminal Investigation Department in Oct 2008.The forest officials retrieved the body of the male tiger which was shot from above from a 303 gun, indicating poaching.Such incidents send shockwaves among wildlife conservators and activists who fear that a poaching racket is active within the Sundarbans, the natural habitat of the Royal Bengal Tiger whose population is dwindling. The Mamata Banerjee Government should take care for saving the tigers in Bengal before they really start burn out.
