Watch How A Bear Turned The Tables On A Sneaky Tiger
An incredible clip that is steadily going viral on Twitter shows the moment a bear turned the tables on a tiger. The clip was filmed three years ago at Rajasthan’s Ranthambore National Park, but resurfaced on Twitter yesterday thanks to Indian Forest Service officer Susanta Nanda. Mr Nanda shared the video on the microblogging platform, where it has received thousands of views since yesterday.
The video showed a tiger moving stealthily towards a sloth bear. The bear was likely busy searching for food. However, the tiger seems to be bent on throwing the bear’s plans off the chart. Sneaking up on the bear, it startled the animal with its paws. Surprisingly enough, the bear turned the tables on the apex predator and chased the tiger with all its might. Limited by speed, it failed to pin the tiger down on the ground but did send it scurrying off, much to the amusement of viewers.
The incident actually happened at the Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan in 2018, but the video is again going viral after the IFS officer shared it. The post has received more than 15,600 views and left many amused at the bear’s reaction.
The tiger immediately ran away possibly knowing that sloth bears have exceptionally long claws for their body size and they use it to fight off predators.
