Déjà 3 tigres morts empoisonnés découverts ce mois ci en Assam, et un éléphant domestique abattu après qu'il ait tué six personnes (Hindustan Times, ce jour).

Forest guards in north-central Assam's Orang National Park recovered the carcass of an adult Royal Bengal tigress on Tuesday.
It was the third tiger believed to have been poisoned this month by villagers adjoining the 78.81 sq km park, 150 km northeast of Guwahati.

Divisional forest officer Sushil Kumar Daila said the carcass of the 10-year-old tigress was found near the Panchnoi No 2 anti-poaching camp on the eastern edge of the park. "Foul smell in the air led the forest guards to the tigress that died a few days ago," he added.
