Filming a tigress walking along with her cubs in the wild is undoubtedly a delight. It is exactly what the field director of the Dudhwa Tiger Reserve has managed to capture before momentarily before the family disappears in the cover of darkness.
In a video, which has now gone viral, the wild cat is seen walking along with her four cubs away from the vehicle of the field director, who records the moment. Soon, the tigress turns around and starts moving towards the vehicle and walks right up to the field director who remains unnerved by the sudden movement.
Illuminated by the headlights of the vehicle, the 1.29-minute clip captures the path of the tigress, who later walks away with her cubs into the forest.

Wow! It’s heartening to see that she and her cubs are very comfortable with the presence of people. Secured, she walks straight and up close towards the vehicle … Lucky people 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼😊

Don’t you think he is too close to the queen and her family? I keep on complaining about visitors but he is field officer.

Brilliant documentation Sir. This also means that she might have lost her last litter of 5 cubs. Hope these cubs survive & became most precious gems of the Reserve.
