This entire village moved out to make room for tigers


Grist

A month ago, there were 200 families living on one edge of the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve, pretty much right in the middle of India. But now there are zero families living there. They moved out. And the tigers — one tiger at least — moved in. Treehugger writes:

It didn’t take long before the village, now completely void of people, to be filled anew. A little over four weeks after the last human departed, Ramdegi is now home to herds of bisons, deer, antelope, and boars — grazing on the budding meadows that were once cropland and cattle farms. … According to the Times of India, even a tiger has been spotted prowling the grounds of the empty village, free from dangerous and often deadly conflicts with humans that have driven the species to ‘endangered’ status.
