A couple of boatsmen taking tourists across an estuary in the Sundarbans in West Bengal state of India, sight something floating in the water. As they close in, they realise it is a tiger swimming across the river, and raise an alarm, shouting bagh, bagh (tiger, tiger) in Bengali. While the locals egg the boatman to take the chase the tiger, the tourists can be heard blurting ‘Wow…Oh my God…’ in apprehension.

 

While some shout directions to the boatman to go close to the tiger and one of the tourists exclaims ‘Nice…’, the annoyed tiger at one point turns its head towards the boat and growls.

 

The video shot by one of the tourists in the boat has gone viral on the social media since it was posted on January 23.

 

However, many on the social media have criticized the group for their insensitiveness in chasing the tiger for a few minutes of fame, and thereby irritating the wild animal in its natural habitat.
