This is the moment terrified forest workers “killed” a tiger by pinning it down with a digger – after the big cat mauled to death two people. Locals said the animal killed quarry worker Bhagwati Devi, 33, and her father-in-law Lakhpat when he tried to save her.
Forest personnel sedated the tiger with tranquilisers, but when the big cat apparently took longer to fall asleep, they used a JCB to pin it down before deploying a net. Wildlife campaigners said the animal suffered spinal injuries, and died en route to Nainital zoo in India.

Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
