Watch: Majestic tiger drinks water as traffic waits!

Screengrab from the video showing tiger quenching its thirst

Tiger among the big cats with its looks and demeanour commands respect and not just other animals but also human beings give it to this grand feline. This is exactly what came across a video posted by Parveen Kaswan, Indian Forest Service officer.


The scene is from Uttar Pradesh’s Katarniaghat Wildlife Sanctuary and the footage shows a wild Bengal tiger drinking water from a pool which has collected at the side of a national highway passing through the reserve.

As the tiger quenches its thirst, traffic on either side comes to a halt, allowing the big cat to finish what it was doing!

The IFS officer has aptly captioned the post as: “The road stopper!! From Katarniaghat WLS.”
