A tiger attacked a farm worker and attacked a car in a Chinese village near the country's border with Russia.

A young male tiger was first seen wandering outside Linhu Village in Heilongjiang Province on Friday, according to Chinese media reports.

The tiger then attacked Wang Xue's car as she drove into the area to pick up a relative.

“He turned towards two villagers working in the field,” Ms. Wang told state media.

"I shouted for them to run, but the tiger ran straight in my direction."

"After two or three seconds, he ran up and pounced on my car, scratching it with his paws."

The car was badly scratched and the rear passenger glass was shattered.

“I was scared and still suffer from heart disease,” Ms. Wang said.

None of the two passengers in the car were injured.

The video also shows a tiger pouncing on a farmer working in the field before escaping.

The report says the worker suffered minor injuries.

In the end, the police managed to corner the tiger and pacify the animal with tranquilizer darts.

The big cat has been quarantined for 45 days at the Handaohezi Cat Breeding Center in Mudanjiang City, according to a report from the Heilongjiang Provincial Forestry Department on Monday.

Siberian tigers are native to Russia and parts of northeastern China.
