Now this is a sight you don't get to see every day: two big cats locked in a nasty fight. We don't know in which game reserve in India it happened, but the video of the incident appears to have been taken from a moving vehicle.

According to a report in a section of the media, two tigers are walking side by side at a sanctuary. Within seconds, one of the tigers changes direction and charges towards the other and a fight erupts.

The dramatic video capturing the fight was shared by Indian Forest Service officer Parveen Kaswan on Twitter.


"Clash of the titans. Only from India. Best thing you will watch. Received via WhatsApp," Kaswan tweeted.

The fight, however, does not last long. At the end of their fierce duel, which lasts a few minutes, the tigers go their separate ways. Rather, one walks away and the other stays put, sitting at the spot, the report said.

On the other hand, the latest Tiger Census, the largest ever done in the world that confirmed that the current tiger population in India has increased to 2967, has entered the Guinness Book of World Records as being the biggest tiger survey ever. The Indian tiger survey – released last year –revealed that India now accounts for about 70% of the world’s tiger population.

Terming it a great moment for the country, Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar had lauded efforts that led to India fulfilling its resolve to double the tiger numbers four years before the 2022 target set at St Petersburg in 2010.
