The Sort of TIrctm Tlmt Hunt For
Tlio "rami eater" Is tho Jungle night
mare of India, and numerous are the,
theories to account for Its abnormal J
appetite. Commonly It Is said to be an
old tiger which has found game too J
dllllcult to bring down, or a sickly (
tiger which has resorted to man kill
ing In Its weakness as tho easier meth
od. The consensus of opinion among
experienced hunters and observers Is,
however, that a man eater Is an ex
cattle killer which In conflict with
herders, who are often quite brave In
defense of their cattle, has discovered
how much less work It Is to kill a man
than cattle, for the cattle killer Is
usually fat and lazy. Nothing has
been found, so far as I have discover
ed, to suggest appetite for human
flesh as the impelling motive, or that
man eaters reject all flesh not human,
or that the cubs of a man killing ti
gress inherit the man killing propen
sity. Huther Is it a case or contempt
for man bred of familiarity, and more
often tho lust lays hold of the tigress,
very likely because in foraging for her
cubs (as she does until they begin to
hunt for themselves at seven months)
and In their defense she has come
more frequently in contact with man,

more numerous than the male or be

The quality of courage possessed by ,
hunting dogs of Asia appears In a
marked difference of habit from that
noticeable In all other carnivorous
beasts. As a rule, each ferocious ani
nial has its natural and favorite prey, '
which may vary in different localities,
hut Is In each case the easiest nnd most
profitable victim. Tigers, for Instance,
are cattle slayers or deer killers, Just
as cattle or deer happen to bo most
abundant in their district.
Leopards prey on goats, sheep and,
when they can got them, on tame dogs;
wolves on sheep and cattle, stoats or
rabbits and hares, and weasels on rats
and mice. But, though the Jungles
which they visit abound In defenseless
animals, tho wild dog does not limit
his attacks to these. Tho packs de
liberately pursue and destroy tho black
and Himalayan bears and tho tigers,
affording perhaps the only instance In
which ono carnivorous species deliber
ately sets Itself to hunt down and de
stroy, another. From thelrrarlty, the
mi illimitable red tinired. ash colored
hell, abandoned and turned to stono
eons and eons ago. She stared, amazed
at the awful thing, for a long minute,
and then, as the tears of inexpllcablo
emotion dimmed her eyes, she turned
