    Park officials in India were chased by a tiger while riding their motorcycles at the Muthanga Wildlife Safari in Wayanad, Kerala State, which is home to about 100 tigers.

    The intense moment, which was captured on video and shared on the Facebook page of Forests and Wildlife Protection Society, sees the two national park officials patrolling the area after they received reports of a tiger sighting in the area, according to Hindustan Times via AsiaOne.

    In the clip, the officials can be seen casually patrolling the area when a tiger suddenly pops out of the woods and quickly chases down the two men on the motorcycle. Fortunately, they were driving fast enough to outrun the tiger.

    As soon as they were out of reach, the tiger ran through the adjacent woods.

    While tigers are not as fast as cheetahs, which can run at 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour), the animal is still capable of running really fast at 65 kilometers per hour (40 miles per hour) over short distances.
