Tiger - Consuming its kill ( Gaur)


*This image is copyright of its original author
Continuation of the series.... After getting into the bushes... this guy was not seen anywhere...We drove to the other side to its regular pathway...thinking that we may have a face to face experience.... though we waited for sometime we did not find any trace of him .... thinking all was over.... we went a little ahead on the safari track...where in we spotted him inside the bushes feeding on its kill.... In the deepset silence....experiencing such a remarkable event that too in a South indian jungle was simple mindblowing..... Though the feel was amazing....tension was on to our nerves considering the close distance we were in and and also when not able to get a clear capture of such an occuring... but with all this we managed to get as many as shots possible for a remembrance.... the above post showing the tiger tearing a part of flesh from the Gaur and the second showing the Gaur flesh partly in its mouth.... ( Quality of the picture infact needs a regret, but the video coverage we have is indeed clear) The entire surrounding being so silent.... the sound of the Tiger tearing the flesh off from the gaur...Stunning and Evergreen moments they are.... Have used Focal B & W as a part of PP to show a better differentiation of the Tiger with the meat....

He immobilized the first Buffalo that stood its ground and attacked him in 10 seconds, literally 10 seconds. Incredible.

Raja is the such a cool tiger, he is a amazing cat. 


RE: Tiger Predation - TheLioness - 07-07-2014

Awesome video, however it does look like the other cow assisted knocking over the cow the tiger had ahold of.

Poor cows thoough, big tiger.


RE: Tiger Predation - GuateGojira - 07-07-2014

Excellent video, sadly that is not complete. What happen at the end? Did he (tiger) hunted the cow, or not?

I have read some old accounts of tigers killing several cows in this way, when they are in a closed space and the tiger enter in a hunting frenzy. Other cats like lions of leopards are reported to do the same.
 


RE: Tiger Predation - sanjay - 07-07-2014

According to original posters, Tiger killed 3 buffalos.
Others have also asked to upload whole videos. Actually this video was shooted on last tuesday. I guess 1st july, The poster took this video from his friend and uploaded to facebook and youtube.

I'm not sure that we are watching the same video? Wink
The buffalo attempted to spike Raja after raja was already sunk in, even forced raja to a more upright position from when he is laying on his side sinking in the fatal bite, then he gets a a hold behind the neck and looks to break its neck and immobilize it.

All reports state that Raja went on to kill 3 buffalo. And thats why they need to not let them graze in the jungle which is prohibited anyway.
