Most people who have been on a tiger safari would know that spotting the animal is not always like you expect it. Sometimes you won’t get to see the tiger all together but if you are lucky enough like these tourists from a recent viral video, you would have a chance to get a close view of the majestic animal. Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Susanta Nanda posted a video of a tiger prowling the lush green tea plantation. The clip shows the large cat watching a passing car with pride while standing straight and then walking away. “Here is a majestic tiger in a tea estate. Some go to Tiger Reserves in Safari, a number of times & don’t spot one & some are lucky to have such a grandeur view,” read the caption posted with the video.

Previously, an unbelievable video of a man chasing a tiger to photograph it went viral. The brief video clip is a classic example of everything you should not do while visiting national parks or wildlife reserves. The video begins with a man dressed in camouflage army print running foolishly behind a tiger. He can be seen holding a phone aimed at the tiger, implying that he intended to capture the majestic beast in his camera roll. Without thinking, the individual darts behind the tiger that was only a few hundred metres ahead of him.
This is going viral. For all the wrong reasons. Tiger tourism sustains local livelihoods & helps in the cause of conservation. Such acts of few morons are giving it a bad name. Please desist from such foolhardy acts & ask ur friends to be sensible during wildlife safari’s. pic.twitter.com/jzUxd1oc6V— Susanta Nanda IFS (@susantananda3) January 5, 2023
Fortunately, the animal was facing away from the man. The visitors in the area, who were also filming the scene from a jeep, saw his irresponsible behaviour. One of the passengers could even be heard asking, “Pagal insaan hai kya? (Is he mad?)”
