Shocking helmet cam footage shows the trouser-browning moment a Bengal tiger narrowly avoided pouncing on motorcyclists in India.

An adrenaline fuelled video was posted showing the shocking scenes of a tiger charging after motorcyclists at full pelt.

The video shows the hair-raising moment a tiger chased two Forest Department officials through the Nagarhole National Park in Southern India, when the passenger recorded the footage.


Tigers can reach speeds of up to 40mph in a flash, so it’s a good job they were quick with the throttle. You never know, maybe he just wanted to remind them to film horizontally.

Thankfully, the Forest and Wildlife Protection Society (FAWPS) has confirmed that neither riders were injured. They were shaken, but not stirred.
