One day a tea contractor, Mr. Sharma was working on an estate with his wife and daughter. He noticed a light movement on the edge of the jungle, so he stopped to watch for a moment. To his astonishment a large tigress appeared and came towards Mr. Sharma. The tea contractor was a very brave man. He told his wife and daughter to run towards a nearby road, while he stepped to fight the tigress with a knife. The tigress sprang at Mr. Sharma and knocked him down, but he managed to wound it with his knife. As a result, the tigress and Mr. Sharma knocked each other unconscious. Luckily for Mr. Sharma, a friend heard the noise of the fight and came to investigate. He found Mr.Sharma and carried him to the road. Then, he stopped a car and sent the injured man to a hospital, where he eventually recovered. The tigress disappeared for a few days but was later hunted down and shot by a game ranger. The game ranger discovered that the tigress had injured her paw in a wiretap and had been unable to hunt wild animals in its normal manner.
