Terrible Video: Gaur Uses a “Friend” to Help Him Get Out of the Tiger’s Clutches

Among the largest predators in the wild is, without a doubt, the tiger. The assumption is that the tiger would prevail in a battle between a bovine and a tiger. Nonetheless, with a little assistance from their herd, animals may sometimes withstand tiger assaults. Recently, a video showing an Indian bison, known as a gaur, escaping a tiger’s grasp when another buffalo rescues it went viral. Susanta Nanda, an Indian Forest Service (IFS) officer, posted this terrifying video on X with the caption, “A buddy in need…While hunting, Gaur pursues an adult tiger and protects its friend.

The location and date of the video’s capture are unknown. Since it was posted on April 16, the video has received over 35,000 views. The largest species of cow in the world is the gaur. Due to their enormous power and size, gaurs seldom ever have natural predators. They are only attacked by predators like as tigers and crocodiles, and even then, they only target defenseless young or wounded gaurs rather than robust adult gaurs. Another well-known trait of Gaur is their tendency to defend their herd from harm. As seen in the aforementioned video, tigers have a reputation for leaving their prey behind when a stronger gaur comes to the aid of another gaur.

An X user commented on this video, saying, “Lonely animals like tigers are not very effective at killing prey.” In twenty tries, they only managed one kill.

“A tiger taking so long to kill a gour means it may be a non-experienced sub-adult or somehow handicapped,” said a different observer.

Another person said, “Observe the enormous size of the tiger.” Given its size, the Gaur it was attempting to subdue was probably a juvenile or female Gaur. However, the heavy cavalry soon arrived, making even the tiger seem insignificant.

Regarding the capacity to discern stories in each nature video, a user on X said, “I always find it fascinating how people can come up with a well-balanced story. Had the gaur been slain, our focus would have been on his majesty and might.

Southeast and South Asia are the Gaur’s native regions. Since 1986, it has been included on the IUCN Red List as vulnerable. Their estimated population worldwide is 21,000 people. India is home to the bulk of gaur. The state animal of Goa and Bihar is the gaur. Red Bull, a well-known energy drink, featured two battling garur as its emblem.
