This determined tiger cub catches it's first meal without the help of his mother.  The 10-month-old tiger was out with his mother and two small sisters when he spotted the female fawn and instinctively chased after it.<br />
<br />
But because of the tiger's lack of experience hunting solo, he started eating his prey alive - resulting in a slow and painful death for the fawn.  Wildlife photographer Shivang Mehta, 33, witnessed the little cub's first solo hunt in Ranthambhore National Park, India.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
