The internet is being taken with strange pictures that look like tigers trying to attack people inside a cage-like vehicle. But hold on, it is not an accidental encounter, but a planned activity to let people say hello to the mighty beasts of the jungle.
Located in the North-Western Province of China, Chongqing, this new theme park launched from the 8th of January 2016. Visitors stay inside a caged vehicle and are taken around the park.
Tigers start to appear and approach the vehicle due to the scent of meat hung around the cage. The travel is claimed to be 100% safe and visitors were allowed to feed the beasts from a safe part of the cage.
Tigers are regarded as one of the most endangered species with three types of tigers already extinct from the planet. They are found in various parts of Asia including Nepal, India, Bangladesh, Korea and Russia.
According to a recent data by Department of National Park and Wildlife Conservation (DNPWC), a total of 198 tigers exist in Nepal, which the government has announced as a 63% increase compared to the last survey in 2009. Chitwan National Park with around 120 tigers is home to the largest number of tigers. Tigers are also found in other conservation areas like Bardiya National Park, Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve and Banke National Park.
