Lucknow, India - Forest officials say a tiger has killed its 10th human victim in a month while evading hunters on its trail in northern India.

Deputy Director Saket Badola of the Jim Corbet National Park says the female tiger was outside its normal territory and prowling near villages on the border between the northern Indian states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.

Badola says the big cat mauled a 50-year-old man as he was collecting firewood on Sunday night near the village of Kalgarh. The animal ate parts of the man's leg and abdomen before being scared away by villagers waving shovels and metal rods.

Meanwhile, three hunters hired to kill the animal were having trouble tracking its pug marks in dense forests.
