In what is believed to have been a fierce territorial dispute, a tigress attacked and killed a leopard in India.
The incredible scene was captured in the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan, near Jaipur in northern India, by business owners Yashvardhan Singh Shekhawat, 24, and his cousin Abhimanyu Singh Rajvi, 30.
A female tiger was caught on camera in India grabbing and kneading a leopard, squeezing its neck in a fist before dragging it across a road (pictured).
The brawl took place at the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan, with witness Yashvardhan Singh Shekhawat saying the tiger leaped 10 feet into a tree to drop its tail to the ground.
When the leopard got out of the tree, a fight broke out between the two cats, which ended when the tiger—roughly three times the leopard’s size—took its neck.
Tigers are not known to hunt leopards for food, and park rangers say they later found the cat’s body uneaten. Tigers, on the other hand, have been known to bite other people if they feel threatened.
Yashvardhan said: “We woke up around 5:30 am and hiked through the jungle at the Sariska Tiger Reserve.”
“We knew there was a predator nearby because other animals like monkeys, peacocks, and deer were all making noises to аet each other to the teаt.
“We were driving slowly, trying to figure out where the sound was coming from.”
“To our right there was a small hill.” Suddenly we heard a roar from behind us, and we saw the tigress was trying to climb up a tree. We also spotted a leopard on top of another tree close by.
“The tigress ran away from the leopard with an eight- to ten-foot leap onto the tree.”In the forest where the tiger was, there was a brief brawl that lasted only a few seconds.
She then dragged the dead leopard across the road, right in front of us. Later in the evening, the forest officials found the dead leopard, but it hadn’t been eaten.
“It makes no sense for a leopard to fight a tiger, and tigers usually avoid leopards.”
“I have encountered lots of tigers over the years.” I’ve seen tigers fighting and tigers mating, but I hadn’t ever seen anything like this.
“Very few people in the wildlife world ever have the opportunity to see something like this.” It was not of this world. There are no words to explain how amazing the experience was.
“I don’t think anyone else would have believed what we had seen if we hadn’t captured it on film.”
