One of them also tried to take a selfie with the tiger without thinking about the consequences. The tiger was in close proximity and this encounter could have been fatal. However, regardless of the danger, the commuters kept walking close to the animal instead of running away.

Shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service Officer Susanta Nanda, the caption in the post read, “Remember that if you see a large carnivore, it wanted you to see it. It never wanted to be chased. The tiger can maul you to death feeling threatened. Please don’t resort to this weird behaviour.”
