  • 'Cow-eating' trees of Padrame

    http://www.newindpress.com/NewsItems.asp?ID=IEK20071023040252&Page=K&Headline ='Cow-eating'+trees+of+Padrame&Title=Southern+News+-+Karnataka&Topic=0
    MANGALORE: Carnivorous trees grabbing humans and cattle and gobbling them up is not just village folklore.

    Residents of Padrame near Kokkoda in Uppinangady forest range sighted one such carnivorous tree trying to dine on a cow last Thursday. According to reports, the cow owned by Anand Gowda had been left to graze in the forests.

    The cow was suddenly grabbed by the branches and pulled from the ground. The terrified cowherd ran to the village, and got Gowda and a band of villagers to the carnivorous tree.

    Before the tree could have its meal, Anand Gowda and the villagers struck mortal blows to the branches that turned limp and the cow was rescued. Uppinangady range forest officer (RFO) Subramanya Rao said the tree was described as ‘pili mara’ (tiger tree) in native lingo.

    He had received many complaints about cattle returning home in the evenings without tails. On Friday, the field staff confirmed coming across a similar tree in Padrane, partially felled down.

    However no detailed inquiry was made as the authorities were not asked for any report, Rao said.

          Does it have to be human?

          "Feed me!"

          Does it have to be mine?

          "Feed me!"

          Where am I supposed to get it?

            The Audrey Two is not a healthy girl.


            Strictly between us - neither is the Audrey One.


            LOL....

                How is it a Islamic Lifestyle and Social issue though?
