A disgruntled tigress charged at tourists touring Corbett National park on an elephant.
In Dhikala zone of the national park, a tigress had made a kill. It swam across a water body towards the thick vegetation where tourist vehicles had lined to get a glimpse of this big cat.
While the vehicles and tour guides engaged in a tussle to get the best spot, the tigress, already agitated with so many humans around, sneaked into the bushes.
As soon as the vehicles started changing positions to get the best sighting as well as images, the tigress mock charged. Incidentally, there was a forest department elephant too in that area with tourists on board (non-Indian. As our vehicle decided to move away from the place and give space to the big cat, many vehicles wanted some more action and footage.
Meanwhile, the tigress decided to mock charge once again and have the last word in the jungle. While we could not capture the first charge, here is the second mock charge, though not as fierce as the first one. Fortunately, no one got hurt and the tigress swam back to where it came from. Man-animal conflict continues.
