It turns out they just went to the place where the tiger ate roe deer.
The tiger attacked hunters in the Khabarovsk Territory (Russia), when they accidentally approached the place where he ate prey, one person was killed, the beast was shot, the director general of the Amur Tiger Center Sergey Aramilev told RIA Novosti.
“So far, it is not reliably known what exactly happened because the body of the deceased person and the tiger were not examined. Previously, what the conflict resolution group managed to establish was that the father and son moored on a boat to the shore to see the pine nut crop, and by coincidence it turned out that they stuck right to the place where the tiger was sitting with the roe deer hunted, " — the interlocutor said.
According to him, the distance from him to the moored hunters was less than 15 meters, and when they went ashore through the high coastal grass — about six meters.
“It turns out they just went to the place where the tiger ate roe deer. What happened is hard to understand for sure — there is no snow, no traces. This question will be answered by examination. The tiger attacked the nearest person, and the second one had a carbine, he shot the beast, ”Aramilev noted.
He added that the tiger was delivered to Ussuriysk, where an autopsy will take place. “A check is underway. Most likely, according to preliminary data, it was a tragic combination of circumstances, ”the source added.
