A heroic dog saves farmer from a tiger attack, shows loyalty and unconditional love. The dog gave up his life to protect his master!
In a village near Dudhwa National park, a dog name Jacky who lived with a farmer in Barbatpur, fought with a tiger to save his sleeping master. The incident occurred on Friday night when farmer Gurdev Singh, was sleeping in the open, outside his house with the four-year-old Indie dog Jacky lying next to him. On smelling and hearing the noise of a tiger approaching from the forest of South Kheri nearby, Jacky tried to make his master wake up to the danger.
While the sleepy farmer woke and was still trying to gather his wits, the tiger attacked. Jacky took on the tiger, giving his master just enough time to grab a stick, raise the alarm and prepare to defend himself. Meanwhile, the tiger severely injured the dog and dragged it away in the forest.
Heroic Dog Saves Farmer by Sacrificing his Life
After the tiger attack, Gurdev’s family rushed to his aid, they began a desperate search of the surrounding area for the missing dog. Later in the night, they found his body at some distance. While forest officials were informed of the presence of a tiger nearby, the grieving family members and villagers buried the heroic dog.
Farmer described his love toward Jacky
“Jacky’s mother was a street dog and my children, Supreet and Gulshanpreet, took it in four years ago as a pup. It was a part of our family and used to follow them to school. Gulshanpreet is inconsolable and didn’t eat for a day. Jacky returned the favour of a few chapatis a day by giving up its life. I wish humans could learn from it how to love others and show devotion,” said the grieving farmer.
Matter of concern
“The entry of a tiger in a village is not surprising because Barbatpur village is very close to South Kheri forest, which is a part of Dudhwa National park. A large part of the forest land has been encroached upon by human and the forest area is fragmenting by the day. The population of big cats in this part of the forest is very high and they sometimes come out looking for food,” said Forest ranger S N Yadev.
