A Lady in Mumbai is being hailed a hero on Twitter after reportedly leaping on a leopard to rescue her little son from its claws. The incident is believed to have taken place in northern Mumbai in a neighborhood bordering a wooded area-park.
The animal leaped out of a dense thicket at around 9pm native time. “I began yelling for lend a hand, and ran against my kid to snatch him. On seeing me way, the leopard made a splash for the timber,” The Mother recalled.
Residents have blamed local authorities for no longer installing streetlights in the space. The Mum, then again, managed to preclude any serious injuries to her three-year-outdated. He used to be given three stitches at a local sanatorium.
The incident has put the highlight back on human-animal conflicts in India’s tribal and wooded area zones. Final month, a BBC documentary attracted controversy after highlighting the issue. It resulted in India banning the broadcaster from filming in its tiger reserves.
Twitter users have “saluted” The Mummy for her “brave” deed. “Simplest a Mom can do this” was once the over-driving theme:
