Tiger vs. Bear

Jer had this to say about such a confrontation.

Here's something I ran across just now:

Tigers specialise in large to medium prey, up to 1,000kg or almost twice their weight. Only adult elephants are safe from tigers. Their favourites include wild pig and deer, also buffalo, young elephant and rhinos. Also monkeys, rodents, frogs, even porcupines. If it is easier, they will eat livestock. Tigers sometimes kill and eat leopards, other tigers and other carnivores like bears. Tigers may also hunt humans (see below). - TIGER (Panthera tigris)
Now, I don't know enough about tiger biology to judge this site's content, but if only adult elephants are safe from tigers, I'd say Jer's right.
