    That Lawn & Alder that just joined the family would be perfect for this. I would pay steeply for the privilege.

    Frosty! Another job opportunity!

    LUCKNOW, INDIA – A tiger prowling near villages in northern India killed its 10th person in six weeks, a day after eluding a trap set by hunters with a live calf as bait.

    The female tiger is believed to have strayed from Jim Corbett National Park, India's oldest national park, which was established in 1936 to provide endangered Bengal tigers with safe territory.

    The big cat's latest victim was a 50-year-old man who was collecting firewood Sunday night in the forest outside Kalgarh village in Uttarakhand state, according to Saket Badola, deputy director of the national park.

    The animal ate parts of the man's leg and abdomen before being scared away by villagers waving shovels and metal rods.

    Hunters had almost nabbed the tiger a day earlier with a bovine calf.

    "On Saturday night the tigress almost fell in trap and was close to the calf," Badola said. "But she did not attack the bait and left silently."

    Reports that a killer tiger was on the loose began circulating Dec. 29, when a 65-year-old man was mauled in Sambhal district of Uttar Pradesh state, across the border from Uttarakhand. Since then, thousands of terrified villagers have been told to watch out for the animal and to avoid the forests.
