A Bengal tiger snatched a woman and dragged her away into the forest in front of her husband last Friday.
They were trying to catch crabs in a shallow river in West Bengal when the tiger pounced and dragged her into thick mangrove undergrowth of the Pirkhali Forest – an area known for tiger attacks – as her husband looked on helplessly.
After he reported the attack, forest guards searched for the woman, but couldn’t find any trace of her, forest official Nabin Chandra Bahunguna said.
The attack happened in the Sunderbans, India’s vast and tangled mangrove forest where the Ganges River empties into the Bay of Bengal.
It was the sixth tiger attack this year in India’s Sunderbans mangrove forest.
