印度博帕尔:野猪杀死老虎(wild boars kill tiger)疑似案例!

2018年4月3日报道,博帕尔:继流浪狗之后,野猪似乎对中央邦的老虎构成了新的威胁。

在巴拉哈特地区,一只成年老虎在与一头野猪的搏斗中被杀,这使得大猫的死亡数量在4个月内上升到9只。这只六岁大的老虎的尸体于周六深夜在卡纳-彭奇走廊的巴拉哈特山脉被发现,并于周日被回收。

起初,森林官员怀疑这只老虎是被电死或中毒的,但在尸检中没有发现这样的证据。一位官员说:“我们在现场发现了野猪毛和粪便样本,所以和野猪搏斗似乎是唯一的原因。”DFO Deva Prasad告诉印度时报,此事仍在调查中。

“野猪可能是原因,”官员说。护林员在巴拉哈特检查了老虎的尸体。
野猪用它们的头撞击作为攻击方式。野猪很有攻击性,而且会激烈地保护自己,尤其是如果有小猪要保护的话。
它们重达100多公斤,以其可怕的头撞击作为攻击方式,并配有锋利的獠牙。

巴拉哈特是卡纳—彭奇走廊中老虎和猎物密度较高的非保护区之一。该地区也是世界野生动物基金会(World Wildlife Fund – India TX2)的项目之一,该项目旨在到2020年将野生老虎的数量增加一倍。

2013年9月10日,一只3岁的老虎P-212在潘纳老虎保护区的Hinouta range附近被一只流浪狗袭击,这是最罕见的事件之一。这只老虎鼻子和尾巴被咬了几口,随后被麻醉并转移到围栏里。其他森林地区也有狗和野猪追赶老虎的报道。

注:媒体网站的报道一般缺乏严谨性,相较于科考文献的真实性还是有待商榷的。

BHOPAL: After stray dogs wild boars seem to have emerged as a new threat to tigers in Madhya Pradesh An adult tiger has been killed in a fight with a wild boar in Balaghat district, taking the toll of big cat deaths to nine in four months.

The sixyear-old tiger’s carcass was spotted in Balaghat’s Logur range — on the Kanha-Pench corridor — late Saturday night and it was recovered on Sunday.

Initially, forest officials suspected the tiger was electrocuted or poisoned, but no such evidence was found during autopsy.

“Fight with wild boars seems to be only reason as we have found boar hair and faecal samples on the spot,” said an officer.

DFO Deva Prasad told TOI that the matter is still under investigation.

Foresters examine the tiger’s body in Balaghat
Boars use their skull as a battering ram
Wild boars are very aggressive and fiercely defend themselves, especially if there’s a piglet to be saved.
Weighing over 100kg, they use their formidable skull as a battering ram and come armed with sharp tusks.
Balaghat is one of the non-protected areas in Kanha-Pench corridor where density of both tiger and prey is comparatively high.
This region is also one of the World Wildlife Fund — India TX2 sites, which aims at doubling the number of tigers in the wild by 2020.
On September 10, 2013, a three-year-old tiger, P-212, was attacked by a stray dog near Hinouta range inside Panna Tiger reserve in one of the rarest occurrences.
The tiger was tranquilised and shifted to enclosure following multiple bites on its nose and tail.
Incidents of dogs and wild boars chasing tigers have been reported from other forest areas, too.
