Bichhia and Nishangada range of Katraniaghat in Bahraich (U.P., India) is a dense forest, a popular inhabitat of tigers and leopards. I remember the days when as a teenager I had occasions to move in the area by a bicycle or even bullock cart including a horrible instance of a face to face encounter with a tiger (the episode covered earlier in another post on this blog). Habits and propensity in relation to sex are the same in animals as they obtain in humans with the difference that animals, particularly the wild ones, have a definite schedule for the purpose which ranges between October to February in India. This is a known season for mating for the tigers and the leopards during which time they go more aggressive when their sexual urge is extremely high, they become much wilder when they run helter skelter in search of a match (mate) but fail to get it and this factor heightens their aggressiveness to the point of driving themselves upon even the female animals outside their own community. Surprisingly enough, they too have a practice of punishing a tiger or a leopard if they opt for sex with a female animal of a different community of animals and this punishment results many a times into death of the trespasser. The forest authorities keep the people of the adjoining villages and other areas to keep away from passing through the forest during the season between October and February as during this season of mating the tigers and the leopards become more violent and even turn into being the man eater. Necessary discipline on sex, it appears, is better observed by animals.
