Tiger tracking. Wildlife warden inspecting a fresh tiger pawprint at the Bandhavgarh National Park, India. An estimated 2,000 to 4,000 tigers exist in the wild in India, mostly within national parks. Increasing human population and encroachment onto tiger territory have been to blame for the rising number of attacks on humans. Maneating tigers are tracked and monitored by park wardens. Individuals that repeatedly attack humans are removed from the park and kept captive in a zoo.
