Tiger – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Although humans are not regular prey for tigers, they have killed more people than any other cat, particularly in areas where population growth, logging, and farming have put pressure on tiger habitats. Most man-eating tigers are old and missing teeth, acquiring a taste for humans because of their inability to capture preferred prey.

It’s ironic that the main reason tigers are threatened with extinction – fear that they’ll attack humans – is due to us being the least-appealing and slowest prey species.
