India man-eating tiger captured

A tiger that is believed to have killed three villagers in the past week in the southern Indian state of Karnataka has been caught, a senior official said.

The animal has been shot with tranquilisers and put in a cage, C Srinivasan told BBC Hindi.

Angry locals who are demanding compensation for the families of those killed are preventing forest officials from removing the cage, he said.

A fourth fatality in recent days is being blamed on another tiger.
