The animal has been staying in the area with its three cubs for the past few months.

The tigress signalled its cubs to hide behind a bush and then pounced on a herd of cattle that locals had left behind for grazing.

The herd of cattle went into a tizzy after Kankati hunted down a cow and killed it instantly.

However, the tigress failed to take the kill away, as alert locals raised an alarm.

Soon, Kankati escaped into the tall grassland with its cubs.

Kankati has been on the prowl in the area for the past few months and has killed at least eight cows to date, locals added.
