Chandigarh, November 28

While jungle safaris are gaining popularity, sometimes things can take turn for the worse. While visitors might be eager to see the big cat in its natural surroundings, sometimes the wild animal can get too close for comfort.

One such incident has been shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Surender Mehra. The video shows a group of people aboard an open safari greeted by an angry tiger.

“Sometimes, our ‘too much’ eagerness for ‘Tiger sighting’ is nothing but intrusion in their Life,” the video caption reads.

The video shows tourists on a safari ride. They are sitting in a vehicle watching the tiger from a distance. However, their intrusion was not very well taken by the tiger and it charged at them from behind the bushes very angrily attempting to scare them off and giving heart-stopping moments to the visitors.

The netizens also expressed their feelings about the incident.

“Tourism should be regulated and the visitors should be told strictly to "be respectful towards animals/Tigers,” a user wrote.

Another user wrote, "Be careful in safari. Your loud voice sounds made tiger to run back." A third user stated: "It's important to install certain behavioural guidelines even for tourists." 

It is not clear when and where the incident took place.
