Spotting a tiger during a wildlife safari may be a memorable experience for most tourists - but some tourists in Rajasthan recently received a shock when the big cat started chasing their vehicle. The incident occurred at the Ranthambore National Park in Sawai Madhopur on Sunday. A scary video of the chase is being widely circulated online.
In the 19-second clip, the tiger is seen fiercely chasing a tourist jeep. The big cat runs alongside the vehicle, keeping pace with it even as the driver speeds up in an attempt to outrun it. The vehicle finally appears to lose the tiger by reversing and going in the opposite direction.
The video was shared on Twitter by news agency ANI, where it has collected a ton of shocked comments.

The video has been viewed almost 14,000 times since it was shared on the microblogging website on Monday. Here is how Twitter users reacted to the video:

Last month, a video of a tigress chasing a tourist vehicle in the Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra has gone viral on social media. After the incident, forest department officials had asked drivers and tourist guides to maintain a minimum of 50-metre distance from the felines in the forest.Click for more trending news
