Interfering Between Two Fighting Tigers Is Nothing to Celebrate

The headline said it all: "Tourists intervene in cat fight at Tadoba reserve". The strap rubbed it in: "TOI reader Vishal Chaudhari admits he broke rules but 'saved the life of a tiger'". The congratulatory tone ran through the story.

What was it Robbie Burns said about the best laid plans of mice and men? Methinks this applies to all the good intentions too at times.

I am all for respecting the tigers rights and allowing them to do what is natural to them. But by the same token would it not be better to place one of the tigers and a few tigress's in a new and removed area, so they can procreate and prosper as a species? What I find truly pathetic is the fools who permit the arsewipe likes of Melissa Bachman to kill a beautiful in his prime lion and yet be upset about breaking up the tigers fighting. Am I in the twilight zone or what?

the man involved seems to think he did right-I don't know enough about it. Tigers must fight in the wild though and if it did not sen that one was in danger of getting killed by the other then maybe he should have oft the alone. Why was he yelling at the two Gypsies ahead I would like to know. It seems he could have said he was yelling tow people. It is totally irrelevant in some ways but I just noticed that and that seemed weird.

I am sure that most big cats including tigers get involved in a number of fights every now and then over territory but I imagine this is hardly to the death. The defeated moves on, I would imagine. There can be bite marks and the like but wild animals have been battling each other in the wild for eons. Death can occur likely more often when deer, moose and other animals with antlers get their antlers stuck and neither animal can break free of the entanglement.

The tigers should have been left to fight their own battle.

Aurea Walker said it best for me. Green star for Aurea. Interesting story. I would do what it takes to save an animal. When in captivity, I think sometimes things get to be too much when they aren't allowed to do what God set them on this earth to do. My cat struck at me yesterday out of the blue and then attacked my other cat. It buffled me at first, then I realized that I over simulated it with playing and suddenly stopping and the only way it had to relieve it's agression was to strike out. Maybe the same is going on with these cats when they are on display day after day, and there is no escape for them. After all, it's profit over the welfare of an animal that is making you the money.
