Wild Bengal Tiger Attacking Man on Elephant.

Tigers are prone to attack when individuals are in their territory. They can run up to 25 miles an hour. This shows their determination, ferocity and aggression. This is very unusual footage since most tigers try to avoid humans in the wild. The Bengal tiger population is down to approximately 3,000. White Bengal Tigers are no longer found in the wild, having been killed off by hunters. They are still heavily poached for bones and other body parts used in Chinese medicine. We must work to protect them.
