No Beast So Fierce: The Terrifying True Story of the Champawat Tiger, the Deadliest Animal in History

We rated this book:


The tiger has long been admired in Indian culture as an animal remarkable not only for its strength but also for its grace. Except when this creature is transformed into a man killer. Here begins this absorbing history of the Champatwat tiger; a Bengal tiger both famed and feared in the early 1900s who had dispatched more than four hundred natives in both Nepal and northern India. Bloody details record the savageness of the sudden unexpected attacks on unsuspecting victims by this formidable creature with bulk and jaws and claws. Dane Huckelbridge presents an awesome recapitulation of the fearsome events surrounding this notorious killer and the hunter who finally trails and shoots the dreaded animal. In detailing the exploits of this aberrant animal behavior, the author richly describes the milieu in which these cats survive, their habitat and the indigenous population’s regard for them. The role that British colonization imposed on the native environment and on the local dwellers that affected these animals along with the factors that transform tigers into man-killers is scrupulously examined. The story is thrilling, bone-chilling, and hopefully, it will be transformed into a film for public awareness.
