Newsweek magazine seriously exclaimed that more people would be eaten by tigers because of global warming.
Now, quit your laughing. They are serious!

According to nutcases at Newsweek global warming empowers “man-eating tigers”:
Another thing that [“man-eating” Indian tigress] Avni’s story makes clear is the role of human policies in exacerbating, if not actually creating, human-animal conflict. There is a very high probability that a controversial ban on slaughtering cattle in the state of Maharashtra, where Avni lived, had a big role to play in the creation of this so-called man-eater.
Perhaps Avni was attracted to villages for the potential prey of defenseless humans, which are becoming more and more attractive in the context of animal extinction and a rapidly depleting prey base. But as several news outlets have noted, what is much more likely is that she was attracted to human settlements to hunt the plentiful cattle available. A direct effect of the beef ban, then, is the horrifying fact that humans have become the prey of a predator in lieu of cows.
Take a closer look at that last sentence.
The Newsweek story is saying that the man-eating tigers have started attacking humans because beef cattle have disappeared after a beef ban.
You know… the very beef cattle that left-wing nutcases like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want us to eliminate.
As Twitchy noted, like a crouching tiger, the Internet pounced on Newsweek’s foolishness…
This is the future libs want

A week ago it was "climate change is reducing tiger numbers," so this may work out roughly even, from the Indian villager point of view.
