A group of tourists had a close encounter with a tiger and a harrowing video of it is now making rounds of the Internet.
The incident took place at the Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan as the tourists were taking pictures and filming videos of a tiger they had spotted nearby.
Things took an ugly turn when the big cat climbed over the wall separating it from the tourists, giving them a rude shock.

“Idiotitis… When the human brain shuts down & mouth keeps talking. Appreciate the anger management of the tiger. But that can’t be guaranteed in future,” read a message he tagged the video with.

Humans are yet to understand that they are in the wild and under its own law and order and they are not watching TV at home.

Can’t Govt ban these type of Safaris, it looks more dangerous for wildlife. Just my thought

But why are people being allowed into forests so freely 🤔🤔

😳 look at the size of the beast!
And at a higher elevation than that jeep. Really close call.
The guide should lose his license.

The sheer noise made by desis during wildlife safaris is enough to make any real wildlife lover pray for retaliatory action by the animals!
