A day after issuing the 'capture or kill' order for a tiger that killed a villager near the Bandipur tiger reserve, Karnataka Forest Department officials have clarified on Wednesday, 9 October, that the kill order will be executed only 'if things go wrong'.

The clarification comes after wildlife activists in the state came out in protest, comparing the order to the killing of tigress Avni in Maharashtra last year.

On Wednesday, forest officials sent back controversial hunter Shafath Ali Khan from Bandipur forest. As Khan was part of Avni's killing, the move has given wildlife activists confidence in the department.
