Newsweek magazine seriously exclaimed that more people would be eaten by tigers because of global warming.
Now, quit your laughing. They are serious!
Man-eating tigers could hunt down more humans due to climate change | Opinion https://t.co/SVg39o70Ps

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…
Humans, they're grrrrrrrreat!

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.
