Tigers are rare, elusive animals and so the thrill of spotting a tiger on a jungle safari is unparalleled. But imagine that the same animal gets too close to you or follows you on your safari. One such incident caught on video has now come to light where a pack of tigers follow a tourist bus during the safari.
The clip, shared on Twitter by user @Bellaasays2, shows a tourist vehicle driving through a tiger enclosure. A few seconds later, one of the big cats can be seen approaching the bus. After that, the wild cat clings to the vehicle and starts moving with it.

Surprisingly, none of the passengers in the caged bus seemed frightened.
The Twitter user shared the video just two days ago and it has since garnered more than 81,000 views and more than 2,500 likes. People on the microblogging site reacted to the development with mixed feelings.

“Adventure – not for the weak,” one user wrote. “That’s how zoos should be. People in the cage and not the other way around,” commented another.
A third user said, “Well, if they’d already had their daily meal, it would be exciting to watch. But if they hadn’t eaten yet…it would be ‘very scary'”. A fourth added, “God…they think they’re meals on wheels”.
The timing and location of the video is unknown.
Meanwhile, in another similar incident earlier this year, a group of tourists riding a four-wheeler safari had a harrowing experience when an angry tiger charged at them as they watched the wildcat and took photos. The incident took place near Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. Indian Forest Service (IFS) official Susanta Nanda posted the video of the terrifying encounter on Twitter.
