WATCH: Tiger Wrestles Sloth Bear in Rare Fight Seen at India’s Tadoba National Park

The video of an angry tiger, fighting with an equally furious bear was captured Wednesday at the Tadoba National Park in Maharashtra, India.

The fight between a tiger and a sloth bear was captured by Akshay Kumar, chief naturalist at Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge, when he was leading a safari with tourists. The bear, along with her cub, were on their way to a water body in the park that the tiger had claimed as its territory.

On seeing its territory threatened by the bear, the tiger attacks it. Thinking the tiger might attack its cub, the bear starts fiercely fighting back.

“The tiger attacked the bear more than five minutes. It went after the sloth bear but she kept charging in order to protect her cub,” Kumar told Indian news network NDTV. “It went on for 15 minutes. The tiger was roaring. It was a severe fight.”

After sticking around in the background for a few minutes, jumping and screaming anxiously, the bear cub runs away from the scene of the altercation.
