Tigers On The Prowl In Madhya Pradesh? Old Images Recycled To Create A Scare.

Content

A set of several unrelated images of a tiger and a leopard on the prowl are viral on social media with false claims that the animals were spotted near the national park area of Shivpuri, Madhya Pradesh.

The posts feature images of a tiger crossing the road at night and another where a tiger can be seen devouring a cow. Another image is of a leopard photographed from a nearby tree, sitting amidst motorbikes lying on the ground. In the next image, men can be seen taking shelter on a tree, possibly to save themselves from the leopard.

Commentary

Some people in India like to scare others and are spreading fake news about tiger and leopard attacks.

Such a shame.
