She had strayed into the village at Deulbari about 150 miles south of Calcutta from the nearby Sunderbans Tiger Reserve.


She was eventually shot with a tranquilliser dart and captured before being taken aboard the fishing vessel.

That photo (and all the following) is so beautiful! How wonderful that they were able to save her from the villagers who may have killed her out of fear.

Some of us also wish we could make a similarly spectacular leap into freedom.
