Leopard Kills Buddhist Monk Meditating in Indian Forest

NEW DELHI – A leopard killed a Buddhist monk meditating in the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in India’s western Maharashtra state, an official source told EFE on Thursday.

The incident occurred on Tuesday when the monk, called Rahul Walke, who lived in a monastery located within the reserve, was meditating under a tree deep inside the forest reserve.

“Yes, a Buddhist monk named Rahul Mahadev Walke, aged 35, has been killed in a leopard attack. As per information from other monks, he was meditating in the forest for last one month. The Buddhist vihar (monastery) is located in the forest,” GP Narwane, the deputy conservator of forest in Tadoba Andhari, told EFE.

The forests of Maharashtra grabbed headlines in November when forests guards had killed a tigress, after it reportedly killed up to 13 humans.

The tigress was killed after the Supreme Court of India had quashed a petition by two activists against hunting the animal.

The hunt had grabbed headlines in the media and was strongly criticized by nonprofits and by the central government.

Situated in the Chandrapur district, the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve is spread over 1,730 square kilometers (668 square miles) and is inhabited by dozens of tigers and other endangered animals such as leopards and hyenas.
