Tourists at a reserve in India have the opportunity to witness the attack and quick kill of the fierce female tiger’s prey.
According to the Hindustan Times, the two animals were discovered while approaching each other in the thicket of the Sariska tiger reserve in Rajasthan, India on June 14.
After many fierce attacks, the battle quickly ended with the victory belonging to the tigress with the number ST-3. The tiger grabbed the jaguar by the neck and carried the carcass across a trail in the reserve.
The entire battle between the two big cats was recorded by tourists sitting in a truck a few meters away. The tiger did not seem to mind the tourists. It quickly took the jaguar to a secluded place to tear up its prey.
Last year, the number of big cats in the Sariska tiger reserve grew unusually slow, mainly due to many female tigers having miscarriages.
The problem is attributed to human encroachment on tiger habitat. The 1,279 km2 nature reserve is inhabited by only 13 tigers.
