In a interesting video from Ireland, a sleeping tiger at the Dublin Zoo had a ferocious reaction to being woken up by its fellow feline.
The footage from a family’s visit to the zoo begins innocently enough, with a young girl mimicking a tiger as it comes prowling towards the glass.
But when the tiger rouses its companion from a serene slumber, the scene becomes rather unsettling and the toddler reels back in terror as the two big cats prepare to do battle.
Fortunately, it appears the tigers were able to work out their issues without resorting to violence, despite some tense moments when it appeared the conflict could get ugly.
While the incident may have been a surprise to the little girl, for anyone who has ever been woken up by an annoying roommate, it probably looked all too familiar.
