Loading the body of a tiger that was shot dead, onto an elephant, and back to the camp where the British hunters are staying...

This is rare old footage of what is now Corbett National Park. The area of the terai and bhabhar were a favourite hunting ground for the British during their reign in India.

What is considered poaching today was called hunting for sport and was glorified in those days!



Jim Corbett National Park—named after the hunter and conservationist Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment—is the oldest national park in India.

The park was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park. Situated in Nainital district of Uttarakhand the park acts as a protected area for the critically endangered Bengal tiger of India, the secure survival of which is the main objective of Project Tiger, an Indian wildlife protection initiative.
