Thieving feline.... A tiger looks to steal bags of food from the ground as workers look to load them up for the day.  The Bengal tiger made the attempted grab in the Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve in Chandrapur, India.<br />
<br />
Jignesh Patel, 39, tour guide owner of Hiss and Croak said, "I was on a tour with my guest when this tiger approached the bags.  He was part of a family of four and was watched on by his father, mother and brother."<br />
<br />
"The bags belong to labourers who work in the reserve to cut the grass in particular seasons to avoid forest fires, in the bag there was food for the labourers that they had brought from home for that day.  Once the tiger realised it was not of use it dropped the bag.   The workers were weary because these were wild tigers."<br />
