Watch: Bikers have close encounter with tiger on forest road

Screengrab from the video

Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer and wildlife enthusiast Susanta Nanda shared a video that showed two men on bike running into a close encounter with a tiger on a road running through a forest.

The video shows a speeding bike coming down the road when suddenly the riders spot the tiger and come to an abrupt halt and start moving backwards. The tiger after a while moves on much to the relief of the bikers.

The video appears to be shot by someone in a car who has already stopped before the bikers at a greater distance to let the tiger cross.

Mr Nanda’s advice is to drive slowly on forest roads so that such  close dangerous encounters can be avoided.
