Man-Eating Tiger Shot




MOSCOW -- A government-sponsored hunting team shot and killed a tiger that was blamed for the deaths of two people earlier this month in the Far East, Interfax reported Tuesday.


The tiger mauled and ate one man Dec. 3 and killed a second man Dec. 15 in the northern Primorye region, an area along Russia's southeast coast. Following the second death, authorities formed a team of hunters to track down the tiger.


The team found and shot the tiger on Monday, Interfax reported.
