Madikeri, Mar 2 (UNI) A tiger, which strayed into human habitations, killed a bullock and injured a cow, even as people were urging the forest officials to curb the menace at T Shettigeri, in South Kodagu near here.
According to a complaint, the feline mauled to death a bullock and attacked a cow in the courtyards of a planter. The animal escaped into the jungle, after seeing the villagers.

The villagers in South Kodagu had complained of increasing attack on livestocks to the forest staff, who had assured them of capturing the tiger.
