There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

This was a bait in captivity, in enclosure at the Xiongsen Bear & Tiger Park in Guilin, China.

I'll let this one stay, but in future please post only wild predation.

Rakesh Dhareshwar‎ -A huge Indian Gaur survives a possible attack by a tiger. Check the lower abdomen on this image and the back on the next one. Looks like he could shake it off, because of his massive build.

This was a bit older article, but a good reminder for risks which big predators can face and not always prevailing. This tiger met two animals, which aren´t usually considered too dangerous (well, with porcupine it´s so and so), but this time they sealed destiny of one tiger. 

https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/tamil-nadu/tiger-attacked-by-cow-dies/article3364975.ece

"A tiger, aged around 10, succumbed on Saturday near Valparai to the injuries it had sustained when it was attacked by a cow a few days ago.

The incident happened at farmer Gananasekaran's cattle shed. The officials said the tiger was wounded earlier and was unable to hunt. Looking for easy prey, it entered Periakadai in Urulikal Estate of the Monomboly forest range. The cow put up a stiff fight when its calf was under threat and it injured the tiger with its horns.

On Friday, the tiger was spotted some distance away from the cattle shed in a badly injured condition. Forest Department officials tranquilised it and initiated efforts to save it. They had a tough time keeping curious onlookers away. For the people of Valparai it was a strange case of a tiger being wounded by a cow. The hill station and its tea estates had only known leopards killing human beings and cows.

A post-mortem revealed that it had injuries on its paws and porcupine quills in its heart and intestine, suggesting that it was injured in a fight in the forests.

Mudumalai Tiger Reserve Veterinarian Kalaivanan performed the post-mortem at the Manampalli Forest Range. Representatives from World Wildlife Fund, NGOs and media persons were present during the post-mortem. Xavier, Ranger Officer, Manampalli Range, was also there.

The officials said that porcupine quills in the body had curtailed the tiger's hunting abilities.

Porcupines are extremely dangerous and with a quill lodged in it's heart and intestine, this Tiger was already dead.
Even a quill in the paw can be dangerous although a big cat can usually pull it out with it's teeth. When it's lodged in an organ the result is already sealed.
