Bijnor: Forest officials deploy UAVs to track maneater tigress

Bijnor:  The forest officials in Uttar Pradesh's Bijnor have deployed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or UAVs to track the movement of a tigress that has turned maneater. The tigress has been giving the officials a slip for more than a month.

Officials hope these UAVs will help them set cages, traps and to corner the animal that is becoming increasingly difficult to spot. These drones can be steered using a remote control.

A team from Allahabad is now camping in Bijnor to help forest officials track down the tigress.

The elusive tigress has strayed from the Corbett National Park and killed 10 people so far. It is being chased by forest officials and also the local MLA of Bijnor, Mohammad Ghazi.

Mr Ghazi launched a hunt for the tigress saying its incumbent upon him to save his people from the maneater.
