Wild tiger strolls casually in Terengganu 2 days after killer whales sighted
First, killer whales, then tiger, what's next?
Two orcas, also known as killer whales, were spotted in the waters of Terengganu, Malaysia on July 16, 2019.
Besides that rare sighting, the state also welcomed another majestic creature — this time on land.
Wild tiger strolling past a village
A video circulating online showed a wild tiger entering a village, causing villagers to panic at the sight of the menacing-looking animal.
People in the video were seen running away from it as the tiger advanced into the village.
However, the tiger did not appear to be interested in humans at all.
Some of the villagers were hiding in their vehicles as they watched the tiger.
It eventually continued its way to the main road, passing by the village.
Another video also showed a tiger on a highway in Terengganu:

This tiger is one of the 200 wild Malayan tigers left in the world.
