Harrowing footage shows the moment a tiger comes bolting out of the jungle after a speeding motorcycle.
The video was filmed by two officers from the Indian state of Karnataka who had been traveling near the Karnataka-Kerala border when they spotted a tiger rushing towards them from the trees.

As the huge cat leaps on to the road in its efforts to apprehend the men, the bike accelerates forwards as fast as it can go, narrowly avoiding the tiger's efforts to catch up to it.
The last glimpse of the animal shows it returning to the undergrowth on the other side of the road.

"A biker miraculously escaped #tiger #attack in #Karnataka - #Kerala #border," the original video caption reads. "The incident happened on #Saturday. #Biker was traveling from #Gundlupet in #Chamarajanagar district towards Kerala."

"The tiger then chased the biker, but the biker drove faster and escaped."

Certainly was moving. It seems those on the motorcycle knew the tiger was there and were filming more for a reaction than surprise.

Wow the cameraman was recording the left side of the motorbike where the tiger came out from. Lucky or hoax?

Hoax. The animal was a German shepherd dog, named Rolf, wearing a Tiger costume and the vid was taken during his vacation in India. Rolf also won the 2019 Monitor Lizard Lookalike Contest here in Germany.
