Skinning A Tiger

Skinning a Tiger, from a sketch by one of our special artists in India, 1876. The future King Edward VII goes tiger hunting. 'When the Prince [of Wales] returned to camp there was excitement among the natives. The news had spread. Soon the six tigers were laid out, under Sir Jung Bahadoor's superintendence, in a row - four tigresses, two tigers - just as hares are put at the end of a drive at home [in England]. They were measured, and their wounds were looked at; and outside the circle formed by the Royal party and the Nepaulese round the tigers gathered the silent natives, admiring somewhat reverently, for they have strange feelings about tigers, and hate and respect them, ascribing many virtues to the animal, and connecting his existence with their own in fanciful, mysterious fashion'.
