Guys on Motorcycle Chased by Tiger, Viral Video Shows Their Lucky Escape

A lot of riders complain about dogs chasing them in residential areas, but two guys recently went viral for getting chased by a tiger! Whoa.

A video of the heart-stopping chase was recorded by no less than the backrider of the motorcycle being chased. Some people admired his guts to record the whole thing even as they tried to drive as fast as they could away from the hungry animal. Whew!

Shared by Forests and Wildlife Protection Society, the video did not show the people getting chased by the tiger, but the animal could be seen running as fast as it could after the motorcycle. It was really lucky for these guys that they were able to escape, but netizens were divided over the video as many believe the guys shouldn’t be in the area at all.

Taken inside Muthanga Wildlife Safari in Wayanad, Kerala in India, the video shows what could happen to people who wander into these wild animals’ territory.

But it turned out these guys were not actually sightseeing in the area. They were actually officials from the Forest Department who were investigating reports that a tiger was spotted in the area. But patrolling the forested area on a motorcycle appeared to be a mistake because the reports turned out to be true!

They barely escaped with their lives.

Though these guys got the fright of their lives, many netizens were laughing at them for the ‘hilarious’ experience. Many joked that they are now thankful they only had dogs to chase them in the neighborhood because they are not sure they could outrun a tiger.

But others were not pleased – and many hoped that the tiger won’t be put down for doing something that a wild creature will do in nature. After all, that forest is its home…
