Dogs will do everything to protect their loved ones, and a mother dog proved this. Her bravery when she scared the leopard away was caught on cam. The hungry leopard was on the prowl for something to eat. Without the female dog’s heroic act, the tiny puppy would have become the leopard’s dinner that night.
When Mrintunhay Madhav, Divisional Forest Officer, heard a commotion outside the building, he immediately responded. He saw a mother dog cleaning her 2-month-old puppy. When he came closer, he realized that the puppy was injured. He headed back to his office to find out about the incident.
The video footage showed what happened during the commotion. The small puppy stood on her own outside the building, not knowing the danger ahead of her. The puppy walked along, unaware of the leopard prying on her. It only took a few moments for the leopard to attack the puppy from behind.
The leopard grabbed the puppy by the neck. However, as she was about to run away with her dinner, the mother dog came to the rescue. The female dog swooped in and fought off the leopard to protect the puppy. The wild cat, realizing that the mommy dog meant business released the puppy and fled the scene.
The dog immediately ran to the edge as if warning the leopard never to come back. The puppy had trouble standing back up, but it was a good thing that the mother saved the day. The prevalence of this kind of incident was due to the wildlife’s scarcity of food. The footage also revealed that the leopard’s leg had an injury, and that was one of the reasons it was looking for easy prey.
After reviewing the security footage, the officials made it a point to warn locals of the leopard’s presence. There was no doubt that the officials were impressed by what the mother dog did to protect her puppy.
