I got to know there has been a fresh kill and they were waiting for gunman to come first before anybody go to check out the scene because of ambush. I requested the forest ranger if I may come along, fortunately he was pleased with my humble request and allowed me to come along.
From that moment onwards for next 4 hours nobody's has been able to control my excitement. I walked out of the gate, crossed the forest fence and immediately we saw tiger droppings. There was few inches bone pieces in the fresh dump.
|Tiger Dump - notice bones |
|Sambar killed by Tiger|
|Tiger pug mark|
The officers continued following the trial but my journey ended after looking at tiger's den. There was other animal left over and he has left me with excitement to spot him now which I can do from my balcony. The deer was not completely eaten, there were flies everywhere and by evening I could get the stink upto my home.
So close to wilderness my room has 15 feet French windows (without grills) and 10 feet from the tiger terrine. This whole experience has made me feel super special every second of my life.
On my way notice elephant dump and beautiful peacocks which is quiet common in Kabini (Rajiv Ghandi national park) also called Nagarhole national park.
