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.
