People often take weekend getaways to wildlife sanctuaries to explore the wildlife and its nature but what if a wild animal sees its prey in you and starts chasing you. Sound scary right? A similar incident took place in Mathunga Wildlife Sanctuary in Wayanad in Kerala where a wild tiger chased two people riding on a bike. The video of the incident has now gone viral on the internet. In the video, two people are seen riding the bike inside the sanctuary when one of them noticed a tiger chasing them.
However, the tiger chased them only for a few seconds and then disappeared into the jungle at the side of the road. The clip was shared on Facebook by Forests and Wildlife Protection Society (FAWPS), which is an NGO working towards the protection of forests and wildlife.
