    Tigers and people come into more regular contact, competing for prey and territory. These encounters are labelled HTCs if they lead to situations in which tigers prey
    on livestock or dogs, people get injured, or tigers are killed in defence or retaliation. Even if people or tigers are not injured or killed, big cats encroaching on human-dominated areas can cause fear and a negative attitude.

    WWF experts say that the resolution of every HTC should be one of the top priorities.
