It’s not everyday that motorcyclists get chased by a tiger.
This video came from the Pambra, Wayanad region in India.
The region is surrounded by tiger sanctuaries.
This news may have gotten around somewhat, but it’s not everyday that motorcyclists get chased by a tiger.
In the video, the pillion spotted something moving in the bushes parallel to the road, which suddenly turned out to be the striped apex predator. You can hear him screaming in panic as the big cat lunges out onto the road and started chasing the motorcycle. They got away, fortunately, otherwise this would’ve been a real-life “found footage” news.
The video was shot in the Pambra, Wayanad region in India. The area is flanked by the Nagarhole National Park and Tiger Reserve to the north, and the Bandipur Tiger Reserve and National Park to the east. The former is reported to house 9 tigers for every 100 square kilometres, while the latter is home to another 231 of the majestic cats.
The Nagarhole Park is completely wild, meaning the animals are not caged and allowed to roam freely. This is why two-wheeled vehicles are not allowed to travel through. Instead, they need to go around the sanctuary. However, there are safari tours by jeep and boat.
We don’t know about how these guys felt afterwards, but we’d need new underwear if it were us.
