The Man-Eater of Champawat.
Champawat Tiger is a legendary female Bengal Tiger. She is allegedly
responsible for more then 400 human deaths in Nepal and the Kumaon area
of India in the early 20th century. This tiger was often seen roaming
the streets outside populated villages and would even try to break into
huts. She was shot the day after killing a 16-year-old girl. Even today
there remains a “cement board” marking the place where the tiger fell in
Champawat town. An autopsy revealed that the tiger had broken upper and
lower canine teeth on the right side of her mouth, which is often the
case with man-eating animals. As humans are easier forms of prey. Around
the same time the Panar Leopard was terrorizing people in the Kumaon
District of Northern India. This male leopard is also alleged to have
killed around 400 citizens, striking utter fear in the parents and
children of many small villages. Both of these animals were hunted down
and killed by legendary big cat hunter and author Jim Corbett. Corbett
was an Indian-born British conservationist who was extremely talented at
stalking and killing man-eaters. These two animals are widely regarded
as the most deadly of all time.
