  • The tiger known as T1 was suspected of killing 14 people

A tigress who is believed to have killed more than a dozen people in the last two years has been shot dead in India.

The minister said that Avni's killing had forced 'two cubs at the edge of a sad death in the absence of their mother'.

For almost three months, equipped with the latest technology, 150 ground personnel, elephants and so-called expert trackers and shooters were on a quest to find Avni.

Hours later, the tigress - dubbed T1 by forest rangers and Avni by animal advocates - was seen walking down a street near the Borati village, and a patrol team was dispatched.

T-1 was shot by Asghar Ali Khan, son of India's most famous hunter Nawab Shafath Ali Khan, who was meant to be leading the hunt but was not present on Friday night. "We didn't want them to eventually become enemies of wildlife", Mr Mungantiwar said. Animal rights activists saw them as encroachers, and argued that she couldn't be called a man-eater because she hadn't entered human habitations to kill people.

Elsewhere, TV footage showed locals celebrating and distributing candies, saying they were relieved that the terror unleashed by the tigress was over. On 11 September, the Supreme Court heard the petitions challenging the Bombay High Court's decision which gave the forest department a go-ahead to implement its order to tranquillize or shoot the tigress.

His status remains as murky as ever - he still has to serve out the remainder of a USADA suspension - and was not spotted at MSG. Lewis landed a nice combo 30 seconds into the second round and even tried a switch kick as he stepped up the aggression.

It said India's Wildlife Protection Act and National Tiger Conservation Authority rules had been flouted, calling for the matter to be "investigated and treated as a wildlife crime".

"She may not have died instantly but slowly, through pain and blood loss, and likely in front of her now orphaned and vulnerable cubs", said Meet Ashar, Lead Emergency Response Coordinator, PETA India. "For territorial carnivores, it's something that they really take notice of". The staff started alerting the passersby about the presence of the tiger.

"In a reflex action of self-defense, the shooter fired from a distance of 8 to 10 meters [26 feet to 33 feet]".

He further said the right to kill wild species did not lie with his department and that the Centre and the Supreme Court have laid down stringent guidelines for the objective. There were reports that the state government chose to terminate his services after the intervention of Union minister Maneka Gandhi. "Every time he has used Hyderabad-based shooter Shafat Ali Khan, and this time his son has also appeared in the scene illegally to murder the tigress".

She ultimately asserted that she would take up the issue with Devendra Fadnavis, the chief minister of Maharashtra.
