Almost 95 per cent of the world’s tiger attacks occur in the
Sundarbans forests of the Gangetic delta. More than 1300 poor Indian villagers, mostly fishermen, have been attacked and eaten by tigers since 1964. Greater numbers have died across the border in Bangladesh. Unnecessarily, says Sudipt Dutta in this first detailed, authoritative work on the Sundarbans man-eating tiger. Dutta challenges the conventional blood-thirsty image and given wisdom on these tigers. Ignorance, lack of
research, lack of political and bureaucratic will and the silence of the conservation community has permitted these poor people to die horrific deaths. Dutta has gathered unparalleled quantities of data and spent four years studying the swamp forests to redraw our knowledge of the misunderstood Sundarbans tiger. He then identifies the key issues that leads to man-eater attacks and suggests a prescription to encourage conservation of these unique mangrove forests, increase tiger numbers and curb man-eater tiger attacks in the Sundarbans.
