The decomposed carcass of the tiger was found at the village of Lakkunda in Kodagu, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forest Vijay Kumar Gogi said in a statement.
”The tiger that was responsible for human deaths in T Shettigeri, Kumatoor, Belur villages in Kodagu district of Karnataka, was found dead in Lakkunda,” Gogi said.
