... of the five hundred square miles of country that the Rudraprayag man-eater
ranged over. This area is divided into two more or less equal parts by the
Alaknanda river, which, after passing Karanprayag, flows south to Rudraprayag,
where it is.
It was generally believed that the Alaknanda offered no obstacle to the man-eater
and that when he found it difficult to obtain a human kill on one bank, he crossed
over to the other bank, by swimming the river. I discounted this belief.
