Special Tiger Protection Force in Karnataka Forests

With about 300 tigers to be protected, Karnataka has set up the first ever commando force – Special Tiger Protection Force – to protect the tigers. Trained in hand-to-hand combat, use of SLRs and small arms, they are currently positioned in the forests of Bandipur, Badra and Nagarhole. Their main jobs are to act during a crisis in the forests and to manage the crowds when there is a man-animal conflict.

Recently, the state saw the influx of large numbers of poaching tribals from Madhya Pradesh. This has quickened the pace at which the team will begin work.
