Tigers are apex predators and they are often regarded as invincible. The sight of a tiger forces other animals to change their path and go in the opposite direction.
But, have you ever heard of a tiger running away from any animal out of fear? Yes, you heard it right. Recently, a video went viral in which a bull can be sen chasing away a tiger and forced it to retreat. The behaviour of the apex predator was quite the opposite to its natural behaviour.
The said video has been shared by Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer, Sushant Nanda in which the big cat is seen getting scared away by the extraordinary courage of the bull.
In the video clip, the tiger is seen lurking by the side of a road when a bull is found strolling along the road. It seems the tiger is waiting to pounce on the bull, once it comes near it. However, the bull displays courage and instead of backing away in fear, goes on charging right at the tiger, forcing it to retreat.
The bull's courage signifies that if we bravely face all our problems and difficulties, we can overcome all hindrances in life.
Sushant Nanda captioned the post, "Courage is found in unlikely places… Bull scares away the tiger. This is not the behaviour apex predator that we know. Pressure of human presence is perhaps having a huge role."
