New Delhi | Jagran Trending Desk: A scary video has surfaced on social media in which a big cat can be seen chasing a bus during jungle safari in Chattisgarh's Raipur. The incident occurred on Friday evening when a group of tourists was on jungle safari. In the video, one of the tourists can be heard telling the drive to speed off and the tiger is seen running after the bus before giving up the chase.

The video was shared by actor Randeep Hooda, who often takes to social media to share thoughts on the preservation of the wildlife, on Saturday. 

The post has been liked over 31,800 times on the micro-blogging website.  

A user tweeted, "This is a very unfortunate event. The illiterate people are laughing. These incredible creatures belong in the wilderness away from Homo sapiens. I wish I could help in any way!!!!" 

"Exactly why wildlife (even if kept in captivity) should be treated with due respect of the wildlife and not treated as pets. No matter how cuddly," wrote another user. 

Meanwhile, two staff at Nandanvan Jungle Safari in Raipur in Chhattisgarh have been sacked for ignoring safety protocol after a video of a tiger chasing a tourist bus went viral on social media.

"As per our preliminary inquiry, the video was shot by the guide. Guides and drivers are trained to ensure the safety of animals and visitors at the safari but these two staff ignored protocol. Instead of accelerating the vehicle, they should have waited and let the situation normalise," the official said.
