Living with Man-Eaters
1 x 2 hour
Commission for Animal planet
We admire their beauty, marvel at their grace and power, but when big cats invade our farms and towns they can spread terror, destroy livelihoods or worse. No place faces this challenge more than India, where man-eaters still take hundreds of human lives a year.
Living With Man-Eaters travels across the spectacular landscapes of India to the flashpoints where big cats and people collide. In three unique stories, we come face to face with India’s three fabled big cats: Indian leopards, Bengal tigers, and Asiatic lions; we learn the plight of the people who have had their livelihoods and even their lives destroyed by the predators; and we meet the individuals striving to find ways of coexisting with big cats.
