A woman for­est guard posted in a re­serve for­est in Mad­hya Pradesh fol­lowed her train­ing man­u­als strictly re­fus­ing to be bogged down by the try­ing sit­u­a­tion she along with two of her col­leagues landed in, when they came face to face with a sub-adult fe­male tiger in the jun­gle, forc­ing the wild an­i­mal to re­treat, ac­cord­ing to the de­layed re­port reach­ing on Sun­day.

Sudha Dhruve along two other for­est guards, Ar­jun and Vishnu were pa­trolling a patch of Sat­pura Tiger Re­serve in MP on foot in the early morn­ing of Jan­uary eight when they no­ticed the ti­gress stand­ing barely 100 me­ters away.

Ms Sudha pushed back two of her col­leagues alert­ing them of the sit­u­a­tion and stood face to face with the big cat.

“I be­came ner­vous ini­tially when I spot­ted the ti­gress in front of us. But, I soon re­gained my com­po­sure and fol­lowed train­ing man­u­als in such a sit­u­a­tion. I stared the wild an­i­mal in its eyes for al­most one and half hours, forc­ing it to re­treat.
