Carnivorous trees grabbing humans and cattle and gobbling them up is not just village folklore.

Residents of Padrame near Kokkoda in Uppinangady forest range sighted one such carnivorous tree trying to dine on a cow last Thursday. According to reports, the cow owned by Anand Gowda had been left to graze in the forests.

The cow was suddenly grabbed by the branches and pulled from the ground. The terrified cowherd ran to the village, and got Gowda and a band of villagers to the carnivorous tree.

Awesome! We should plant more of these.

I've heard there is a kind of tree in Guatemala which actually latches onto and devours other trees. I even saw pictures of one in action. I'd imagine the trees spoken of in this article are quite similar.

Very, very unlikely. Also:

Regardless, I'd be interested in more information about the cannibal trees.
