Talk about a close call…

Two Forest Department officials in India were riding a motorcycle through a sanctuary when a tiger came running out of the woods and started chasing them!

Fortunately it gave up quickly and went back into the woods. 

Ironically, the two were there to investigate a tiger sighting…

Thankfully, no one was injured.

Have YOU ever come close with a wild animal???
