Terrifying footage shows a tiger leaping out towards a motorcyclist and racing towards him.

It jumps from the bushes as the biker rides past, and chases after him so quickly that at first it looks like it might catch up.

Video shows the big cat appear from woodland and try to grab the wheel of the bike.

The clip was filmed on the edge of Nagarhole National Park in southern India, where 72 Bengal tigers live.

After around five seconds, the biker has reached safety as the cat cannot keep up despite being able to run at speeds of up to 40mph.

The near miss started trending after being upload to social media yesterday.
