Indian Guar Bison Battle Over Territory

Occurred on January 15, 2021 / Valparai, India

Info from Licensor: When I was in Valparai, Tamilnadu (India) on 15/01/2021, I saw many wild animals in nearby Tea estates. They visit these estates every day for food. We can see Lion-tailed Macaque, wild elephants, and Indian Gaur (Bisons) easily. That day I was photographing Serpent eagle, one person came and told me that there were some bison. I went there. So I decided to stand there on road and I was nearly 10 feet away from the bison. He was watching me but he didn't attack me. So every time I say, wildlife will not attack on their own.

After 5-6 minutes they both are fighting, the sound of their horns is much louder and I was watching that from nearly 20-30 feet. Adult Gaur defeated another sub-adult gaur. The moment when he picked the other gaur in the air was one of the crazy moments I'll never forget in my life. My hands were shivering with some fear because I'm the single person watching that live fight. It was an amazing experience. Then I happily returned from Valparai!
