Situation

The reason behind CATTLE COMPENSATION,is that if a villager loses his cattle to Tigers,this is their livelihood,if they do not get compensation they will poison the carcass,the Tiger will go back eat more then die because of this action.There were many Tigers lost in this way in 2009.If the villager makes a legitimate claim,they can let our contacts know,they verify it,we can then compensate them,the Tiger can go back finish off the carcass,there is a win / win situation. The cost of a cow in India is around 2000 Rupees (£25),water buffalo are about 5000Rupees ( £60).We compensate 20- 30 villagers on each trip depending on cases. The equipment,we purchase bicycles,mosquito nets and torches to allow the forest guards to perform their job more effectively.
