A lion and bear engaged in a wild brawl in the Tadoba National Park in Maharashtra, India.
Akshay Kumar, the chief naturalist at Bamboo Forest Safari Lodge, was leading a safari of tourists when they saw the bear and tiger.
Kumar,who filmed the fight, told NDTV that the tiger had marked a water hole as his territory:
The tiger attacked the bear more than five minutes. It went after the sloth bear but she kept charging in order to protect her cub. It went on for 15 minutes. The tiger was roaring. It was a severe fight.
