A strange video of a tiger and a sloth bear is making the rounds on social media. The video shows a close encounter between a tiger and a sloth bear. The video opens with a tiger going down a wooded trail. A bear enters the shot a few seconds later, prompting the tiger to turn around.
A close shave…

The bear approaches the tiger, who is inspecting the situation. The bear suddenly stands on its hind legs, causing the tiger to sit down on the ground.
After studying humans in the area, the bear stands up again and runs away. The tiger continues to sit on the ground while looking in the direction where the bear fled.
