In the Indian national park Sariska, right in front of the tourists, the scene of a tigress hunting a leopard unfolded. The victory of the striped predator is filmed.
Sariska National Park is located in the Alwar district of Rajasthan, 107 km from Jaipur and 200 km from Delhi. This territory has been a tiger reserve since 1979. Mammals such as the Bengal cat, the reed cat, the leopard, the caracal, the striped hyena, the jackal, the axis, the Indian sambar, the nilgai, the four-faced antelope, the gulman and the rhesus monkeys also live here.
Despite the reserved status, the number of tigers in the park has steadily declined due to poachers. At the beginning of the 20th century, there were no more than 15 individuals, and in 2005, specialists could not even find traces of the presence of tigers. Through the efforts of the local administration and environmentalists, a program was implemented to restore the tiger population; several animals were transported from other conservation areas, and by 2014, not only 13 adult tigers lived in Sariska, but also their offspring. And recently, tourists saw a tigress in action: a predator named ST-3 tracked down a leopard hiding on a tree, attacked it and took it to the thicket to enjoy the meal.
