    According to wildlife advocates, there are established rules for human behaviour in safari areas, and it is necessary to maintain a safe distance from tigers in order to prevent accidents.

    A tigress chasing a car with tourists has been captured on video in Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) in the state of Maharashtra's Chandrapur district, the Indian Express reported.

    According to TATR Field Director N R Pravin, this particular tigress, who is about three years old, is known to have charged at a tourist vehicle before.

    "After the incident, a meeting of tourist guides and drivers was convened, where strict warnings were issued to keep a safe distance from tigers," TATR Field Director N R Pravin said.
