Heart-pounding moment huge tiger attacks car with people inside

This is the terrifying moment a huge tiger attacks a car filled with villagers after they tried to chase it away from the area.

The 200lbs predator had wandered into the village of Turiy Rog in the Russian province of Primary.

Local residents took it upon themselves to drive the tiger away from their farms after they spotted it stalking the area.

But, as nail-biting footage showed, it didn’t quite go to plan.

In the video, the tigress can be seen bounding towards the vehicle as those inside scream in terror.

It then can be heard smashing into its side, leaving a huge dent, as the driver tries to flee.

Footage then shows the big cat sprinting off into the distance before pouncing on a woman.

Incredibly, she was left completely unharmed.

Amur Tiger Center heaped praise on the animal that didn't harm a single resident in a statement on social media saying: "Despite being provoked, the tigress showed a huge amount of self-restraint."

"She crumpled the side of a car, and after that inflicted no serious injuries on the woman that she pounced on."

The centre reported that an expert was sent to the scene and captured the tiger, which is now going through a medical check-up.

If the animal is confirmed to be healthy, it will be released back into the wild.

Locals have unsurprisingly been warned to never attempt to control a wild tiger and to keep their distance until a specialist arrived.

The Siberian tiger is consider endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), with only 3,900 of them left in the wild.

It comes after incredible pictures captured a Bengal tiger battling a 300lbs bear dubbed the “deadliest in the world” in a 30-minute brawl.

And last year, a 60-year-old man was mauled to death by a tiger as he tried to protect his cattle.
