A portrait of Gaur (Indian Bison), the largest and tallest species of wild cattles and one of the largest living land animals and extant bovine native to Indian subcontinent along with South East Asia. They are bigger than African Cape Buffaloes and North American Bison. And they are listed in Appendix I of the Conservation on International trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), and categorized as Vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). In 2011, all Gaurs vanished from Bandhavgarh. 19 Gaurs (14 females, 5 males) were captured from Kanha Tiger Reserve and translocated to the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in 2011. Of these, 12 were fitted with radio collars, allowing researchers to study the home range, habitat use and food habits of individuals. The known extinction of Gaur from three protected areas in #india (Thattakad Wildlife Sanctuary, Bhandhavgarh Tiger Reserve and Kanger Valley National Park,) in the last two decades shows the plight of this species.
There are few evidences from YouTube which show a Tiger feeding on the Gaur. But there is no confirmation that whether the Gaur was ill, or it already died of natural causes before Tiger considered it as a meal. No documentary in the world and no program on the animal has known to be shown a Tiger killing a Gaur. Therefore, this still is not possible to conclude that a Tiger is capable of killing an adult Gaur. But there is no doubt that tigers are powerful, cunning, and expert hunters and they can kill one unleashing those exceptional skills. However, the attack always happens from the back. Nobody in the forest dares to face this animal head on. Gaurs are even seen not to move an inch and calmly busy in their own world with the tiger in the vicinity.
