The Gaur or bison (Bos gaurus) is a formidable but shy animal. In general, it will avoid humans. But Reggie Davidar, the founder of the Sigur Nature Trust came too close to a bull gaur and was attacked. He was literally sent into the air and had to crawl under some bush to escape the attack. He managed to reach the road with a fractured spine, punctured lungs and broken ribs. The horn had stopped one millimeter from his heart. This is exceptional but animal’s privacy must be respected.
