The Man-Eater of Champawat.
The Champawat Tiger is a legendary female Bengal Tiger. She is allegedly responsible for more then 400 human deaths in Nepal and the Kumaon area of India in the early 20th century. This tiger was often seen roaming the streets outside populated villages and would even try to break into huts. She was shot the day after killing a 16-year-old girl. Even today there remains a “cement board” marking the place where the tiger fell in Champawat town. An autopsy revealed that the tiger had broken upper and lower canine teeth on the right side of her mouth, which is often the case with man-eating animals. As humans are easier forms of prey. Around the same time the Panar Leopard was terrorizing people in the Kumaon District of Northern India. This male leopard is also alleged to have killed around 400 citizens, striking utter fear in the parents and children of many small villages. Both of these animals were hunted down and killed by legendary big cat hunter and author Jim Corbett. Corbett was an Indian-born British conservationist who was extremely talented at stalking and killing man-eaters. These two animals are widely regarded as the most deadly of all time.

Fantastic photos!

The Manchurian tiger looks like it was stretched over a bear form but I would think that then, forms were made in plaster one at a time.
I once saw a leopard that I swear was on some sort of ape form - the face was way too long and the hips were too high. Looked like a big spotted spider monkey!

I highly recommend his book for those who haven't read it yet - Corbett comes across the decades as a sensitive, thinking man who respected the animals he hunted, often to put them out of their misery (he suspected painfully embedded porcupine quills drove them to their murderous rampages)

Sorry for the late uppdate but the colour pic is not of the great hunter Mr. Reddy but of Mr. Shammi Kapoor a famous movie star of the 60's.

His father Christopher William Corbett was born in India but was Irish and he joined army as junior medical officer and later promoted to captain and then as a postmaster at Nainital where the family settled.

I understood too that Corbett was born in India, but from British ancestry.

Thanks Dandy for the information.

Coincidently I have some photos I scanned today supplied by Gatsby (Oz), one of the guys at the pheasant shoot connected with Corbett in modern days. His house and the museum today, plus Corbett National Park. I will post on a separate thread soon.

Corbett trained british troops for jungle warfare. He was made captain during world war.
He left India after India's indipendence.

He then went to his estate in Kenya where he established the now famous tree tops.

Well, as this thread is named hunting in Asia…
Here are some photos from the books of German zoologist Ernst Schaefer (1910-1992), who travelled and hunted western Sichuan and eastern Tibet in the 1930s. His first two expeditions in 1930 and 34 were led and financed by American Brooke Dolan II, while his third 1938-39 one was pushed and sponsored by Nazi Heinrich Himmler to collect evidence for Himmler's obscure theories. (See Wikipedia:"Ernst Schaefer", "Brooke Dolan II", "German expedition to Tibet") Would you deny such an opportunity to hunt remote regions if the devil pais the expenses?
On some of the photos you will see Schaefer's favourite rifle, a ¾ stocked Mauser in 7x64,similar to the Mauser "African model", clawmounted with a Zeiss Zielacht 8x scope. He was provided with this rifle and the ammo by Wilhelm Brenneke, Leipzig. All these "Original Brenneke" prewar rifles were built for W.B.,L. by Schmidt & Habermann, Suhl,on Mauser actions, as shown by their ESHA mark in hidden places on these rifles.

First, something familiar to our Aussies: A Sambar stag from it's homerange.




The Dwarf Blue Sheep was discovered by Schaefer. The species got the scientific name pseudois shaeferi in his honor. It is perhaps the rarest of all sheep, the entire population estimated at 200 animals.



A common Blue Sheep or Bharal




A Wild Yak bull, perhaps the largest bovine, standing 2 meters high at the shoulder.





A Tibetan bear, specimens known mostly from Schaefer's expeditions.



More Tibetan bear.
