  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Tigers in Nepal seem to be taking night shifts in order to avoid their human neighbours, a study has shown.

The big cats generally move around at all times of the day and night, to monitor territory, mate and hunt.

But the study of tigers in Chitwan National Park - where humans and tigers walk the same paths - showed a nocturnal shift in activity.

They are probably working in that Microsoft call centre where they shout, "RAWR" when you ask for someone who speaks English.  Grr.

Have you ever worked night-shift?  In a tiger-free zone?

The city is not as "peaceful" as we all like to think it is during the night.  Believe me.  I speak the Truth.  There are maniacs loose.  :)
