A video of a tiger chasing a motorbike in India has gone viral after stopping hearts everywhere.

Filmed by the bike’s pillion passenger, the clip looks innocuous enough, mainly just a long shot of a forest zooming by.

Next thing you know, a tiger comes absolutely streaking out from the bushes, giving full throttle chase to the bikers.

But, just as it looks like time’s up for the two blokes, the tiger pulls back, disappearing into the forest on the other side of the road.

It’s understood that the pair on the motorbike were Forest Department officials investigating reports of a tiger sighting in the area.

According to Forest and Wildlife Protection Society, the scene took place in the Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary in Kerala.
