In a scary incident, a huge tiger recently attacked people in Pilibhit, Uttar Pradesh. Forest department officials rushed to the area and executed an operation to take the adult male tiger back to the forest.
Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer Parveen Kaswan took to Twitter to share a picture from the operation. The photo shows the enormous tiger sitting on the tractor and the rescuers can be seen battling the aggresive animal with a long stick.
“Look at the sheer size of this tiger. Sitting on a tractor. A video was viral yesterday of this tiger
from Pilibhit which stranded out. With all efforts and coordination it was safely provided a passage. The tiger went back to the forest. A perfect operation,” Kaswan wrote in the caption.

I can never get tired of saluting & bowing before the rescuers & the villagers who aid in the rescue operations involving wild animals
The animals are scared & can act aggressively (natural).. yet the rescuers help them & set an example for all the rest of us
