In what can be termed as a rare wildlife incident, a tiger in the Sariska Tiger Reserve in Alwar district of Rajasthan attacked and killed a leopard and carried the carcass in its mouth.
Abhimanyu Singh Rajvi, the grandson of former vice-president Bhairon Singh Shekhawat and a wildlife enthusiast who happened to be on a jungle safari in Sariska, witnessed the whole incident and even managed to capture some images.
The images show the beast carrying a leopard carcass in its mouth in Sariska’s Kala Kuan area.
Rajvi said he saw the big cat (ST-3) climbing a tree to catch its prey. When the leopard fell from the tree, ST-3 jumped on it and killed it within a few minutes.
