A Narrow EscapeSubmitted by Aneesh Sankarankutty
Two Nilgiri Tahrs were having a fight on the slope just above this road. Suddenly one slid and fell down. You can see the dust kicked up by its slide and fall. A jeep was travelling on the road and would have hit the animals, if not for the driver who braked suddenly and managed to stop in time. Thankfully, this was possible because the jeep was being driven at a reasonable speed. Sticking to speed limits in and around protected areas gives animals on the road a fighting chance.
