The incident took place in Zone 1 of the famous tiger reserve on Sunday evening. Nobody was injured in the incident. Reports suggest that the driver had stopped the vehicle very close to the feline, making her angry. Ideally, a vehicle should maintain a distance of at least 50 meters from any wild animal.
This is not the first incident of big cats chasing humans. Earlier this year, a video of tiger chasing two bike-borne men on Karnataka-Kerala border near Wayanad district went viral. In the clip, the tiger was seen chasing a bike.
