In a chilling video which surfaced on social media shows that two men on a bike were surrounded by two tigers in Maharashtra's Tadoba wildlife reserve.
In an over four-minute-long stomach-churning video, the bikers are seen stand still, frozen with fear. They couldn't have zoomed off as that would have agitated the tigers and led to an instant attack or a terrifying chase. The people who were present in the car kept on indicating the two men not to make any such move. The tigers, however, don't seem to be in a mood for any manhunt and let the bikers escape from the area. While one of them strolls around, takes rest and resumes his leisurely walk, the other one, not much of a walker, sits peacefully.
