This photo was taken from outside through a gap in the window. It is a leopard and a dog stuck together since this morning inside the toilet of a house in Kadaba, Dakshina Kannada district. I am told the leopard escaped at 2 pm and the dog is alive! pic.twitter.com/hgjJhaXW03— Prajwal (@prajwalmanipal) February 3, 2021
Not the window* it is taken from the top by removing the asbestos sheet. The forest department tried to catch the leopard by removing the sheet and tranquilising it but the leopard escaped.— Prajwal (@prajwalmanipal) February 3, 2021
The dog and the leopard were inside the toilet from at least 7 am till 2 pm.
A plan was hatched to trap the tiger in a net from the top of the toilet. But the leopard proved to be too strong, broke free and ran away. pic.twitter.com/ZFZgtDWkH0— Prajwal (@prajwalmanipal) February 3, 2021
The incident was also shared by Indian Forest Service Officer Parveen Kaswan. Taking to Twitter he shared the pic from the incident and captioned it as "Every dog has a day. Imagine this dog got stuck in a toilet with a leopard for hours. And got out alive. It happens only in India."
As per reports, Forest Department officers brought tranquillizer darts to sedate leopard and move it back to the forest. However, the animal managed to escape by breaking the roof and nets at around 2 pm. The forest Department managed to rescue the dog alive who was later identified as Bollu by the locals. What is shocking about the whole incident is leopard didn't attack the dog even after chasing the dog and getting locked. Also, its not less than a miracle.
