Forest officials say a tiger has killed its 10th human victim in a month while evading hunters on its trail in northern India.

Deputy Director Saket Badola of the Jim Corbet National Park says the female tiger was outside its normal territory and prowling near villages on the border between the northern Indian states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.

Badola says the big cat mauled a 50-year-old man as he was collecting firewood Sunday night near the village of Kalgarh. The animal ate parts of the man's leg and abdomen before being scared away by villagers waving shovels and metal rods.

Meanwhile, three hunters hired to kill the animal were having trouble tracking its pug marks in dense forests.

The search continues.

The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
