(KGTV) - Does a viral video really show a tiger emerging from the woods and chasing a motorcyclist?

Yes.

The video was shot at a wildlife sanctuary in India.

Although it looks scary, a conservationist says the tiger was likely "mock charging" and not actually attacking the motorcycle as it rode through the animal's territory.

Bengal tigers can run up to 40 mph.
