A rip-roaring video of two tigers fighting has been doing rounds on social media, leaving netizens captivated. In a video that was shared by an Indian Forest Services officer, two tigers can be seen battling with each other for the sake of their territory. Interestingly, the video was posted on the 47th anniversary of Project Tiger, a tiger conservation programme that was launched in 1973.
Parveen Kaswan, an Indian Forest Services officer, shared the two minute and five seconds long video on his official Twitter account on 1 April. In the video, two fully grown ferocious tigers can be seen aggressively roaring at each other, while afraid tourists stood at a distance in order to witness the sight. The IFS officer revealed that the entire battle had been captured at a forest in central India. Another IFS officer, Sandeep Tripathi, recognised the tigers as MV3 and Yuvraj, hailing from Kanha Tiger Reserve.
