[www.keralites.net] Woman saves husband from leopard


Woman saves husband from leopard 


A poor farmer's wife kicked at a leopard and saved her husband from being mauled, deep in the forests of Khanapur taluk on Sunday night.

Showing bravery and presence of mind, Devaki (50), a grandmother of three, rushed out of her house in Chikale village on hearing her husband Vasudev Laxman Pawar's cries of help. She saw a leopard clinging onto Pawar's arm.

According to eyewitnesses, Devaki rushed in without a thought and kicked  the leopard so hard that it went flying two feet away. Pawar quickly shone the torch he was carrying into the leopard's eyes. He and his wife then manoeuvred the blinded leopard in through the door of their small tiled house and locked it in.

Pawar told Express from his bed at the district hospital: "At about 12.15 am on Sunday, I heard dogs barking near my house. I suspected that the leopard, which has been attacking dogs in our village, was somewhere around. I came out of my house with my torch to bring my pet dog in to safety when the leopard attacked me. My wife, daughter-in-law and three grandchildren rushed out of the house on hearing the commotion and my wife saved me.''
