Two tigers can be seen walking side by side in a sanctuary. One can be seen walking towards the unpaved forest path while the other can be seen walking away from the tiger. But in a matter of seconds, one of the tigers changes direction and charges towards the path.
Indian Forest Service official Parveen Kaswan has shared on Twitter a dramatic video capturing the fighting between the two tigers.
“The clash of the Titans. Only from India. Great thing you see. Retrieved via WhatsApp,” Mr Kaswan tweeted.

It is not known where or when the video was taken. It appears to have been shot from a moving vehicle passing through the sanctuary.
This video has been widely shared on social media.
According to a report released in July 2019, India has increased its tiger population from 2,226 in 2014 to 2,967. This country now accounts for more than 70 percent of the world’s tiger population – a source of pride and enormous responsibility.
