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.

Photograph taken in Alwar state, Maharaj Jay Singh of Alwar can be seen standing with sola topee or hat behind the tiger. My great grandfather is 2nd from the right with sola toppee in hand.

When Maharaja Jay Singh of Alwar *visited the showrooms of Rolls-Royce in London, the salesman implied that he couldn't afford to purchase the new model, am told he purchased 10, shipped them home & converted them into garbage trucks.
