Mysore, May 17, 2020: A video of a wild dog or a dhole raising an alarm while being chased by a tiger has fascinated viewers on social media. The endangered wild dog - itself a predator - was filmed running furiously to escape the tiger in Kabini, Karnataka.
A video of the chase was originally shared by FiveZero Safaris and went viral on social media after it was tweeted by a wildlife photographer, who called the dhole’s sound of alarm "peculiar". "Never ever heard or seen the alarm call of dhole in forests as they themselves are predators," he wrote while sharing the video on Twitter. "This tiger made him run for his life. What a peculiar sound."
