It is not the first incident in which the dog has been painted to look like a tiger. A year back, a farmer in Karnataka's Shivamogga painted the fur of his dog to make it look like a tiger in a bid to save his crops from monkeys.
Monkeys damaging the crop is a cause of distress to farmers and Srikanta Gowda, from Naluru village, Thirthahalli taluk, had seen a farmer use a tiger-like doll as a scarecrow near Bhatkal in Uttara Kannada district about four years ago.
The farmer thought of getting the doll for his farm when he placed it, he was shocked to see the results as the monkeys got scared and did not come to his plantation.
Two days later, he placed the doll in another area of the plantation and witnessed the same result. Though it was a good idea, Gowda realised that he could not depend on it for long.
