TIGER VISITS CAMP CORBETT FOR BREAKFAST!

The Kaladhungi forests have long been known as the home of tigers, but today the Camp Corbett Chowkidar (Watchman) got the surprise of his life when, at around 9.15am, a male tiger jumped across the track next to the Camp car park, a few metres away from where he was sitting, and entered the sal forest on the far side of the road. Guests enjoying breakfast in the nearby dining room were unaware of Mr.Stripes passing a short distance away.

The tiger had come down the Baur Valley the previous afternoon, leaving its distinctive pugmarks in the sandy riverbed, and had probably made a kill in the surrounding scrub forest, which is home to small herds of chithal (spotted deer), the occasional sambhar and many kakar (barking deer).

The tiger was seen again in the sal forest at dusk by Chris Salt as it made its way to the foothills on its quest for food.
