PETRIFYING footage shows a tiger leaping out towards a motorcyclist and chasing him down the road.
The stripy beast flies out of the bushes as the biker rides past, and follows him at an incredible rate of speed.
Video shows the big cat emerge from the forest and try to grab one of the bike’s wheels.
The clip was filmed on the edge of Nagarhole National Park in southern India, where 72 Bengal tigers live.
After around five seconds, the biker has reached safety as the cat gives up the chase.
Tigers are able to run at speeds of up to 40mph.
The near miss started trending after being upload to social media yesterday.
At the beginning of the year, a tiger at the park killed three people before it was caught and tranquillised, according to the Daily Mail.
They included a 28-year-old man and a 60-year-old man.
In 2015 two farmers were killed by a male tiger.
Earlier, in 2013, four people were killed in the area including a farmer, 55, who was mauled to death outside Bandipur.
