Indian Tiger...

By debu    
Tigers usually attack large prey by stalking from the rear and then rushing their prey. When seizing and killing prey, the tiger's main target is the neck, either the back or the front - depending on several factors, such as the size of the prey; the size of the tiger; whether the attack is from front, rear or side; and the reactive movements of the prey. Generally use weight of legs/paws to break neck - or at least stun prey. After the initial attack on large prey, the tiger will grasp the throat and hold a prey item until it dies from suffocation.Tigers have the greatest reputation as man-eaters, especially in India. Currently, with greatly reduced numbers of tigers, attacks on people have been relatively rare, except in the Sundarbans mangrove forest fringing the Bay of Bengal in India and Bangladesh.

Good shot Debu.
And I watched a wildlife programme on the TV,
and they said it would only eat you if it was hungry.
That is really small comfort to me !!
