Look out: there's a tiger in the village

In Australia, tourists are warned to be careful of crocodiles, snakes, dingoes and drop bears.

In Thailand, it pays to keep your eyes peeled for tigers.

The Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) has just sent a team of officials and veterinarians to capture a wild tiger that has been wandering into Kariang Namtok village in Kamphaeng Phet, the Bangkok Post and The Nation reported.

The animal, which has reportedly scared villagers and killed pigs, will be captured, examined, treated for any injuries and released back into the wild, said Surachai Photkhamanee, chief of Khlong Lan National Park.

About 50 people were deployed on Saturday to track the tiger and assist in the capture operation.

Estimated to be about two years old, the young animal is believed to have wandered from Khun Nam Yen in Mae Wong National Park.
