Leopard attack rumours grip Ramakrishnanagar

January 29, 2023

Mysuru: Tension prevailed for a while at Ramakrishnanagar after a carcass of a partially devoured calf was found near Indira Loka (Digantha Bhavan) on Chaduranga Road in Ramakrishnanagar ‘I’ Block here this morning triggering rumours that the calf was killed by a leopard.

As soon as the rumours spread, Forest Department staff and Police personnel rushed to the spot and conducted an inspection.

On going through the footage captured by a CCTV camera installed at Indira Loka, the Forest and Police personnel saw a pack of 5 to 6 stray dogs attack and killing the calf yesterday night.

The Forest and Police personnel informed the public that it was stray dogs which had killed the calf and not a leopard. The carcass was removed by the MCC staff.

    A pack of stray dogs attacking a calf is also scary if not as dangerous as a leopard. Imagine what if a human was attacked by the dogs. MCC needs to seriously address the issue of increasing population of stray dogs.

  2. Zaheer Ahmed says:

    What a relief! Stray dogs behaving like wild animals in the midst of human population is not a scary news at all. It could as well have been a human calf, but not to be worried after all it was killed by just a pack of stray dogs not a leopard. Can we be more complacent on the stray dog menace in the midst of Mysore or elsewhere in the country? No advanced country in the world is plagued by such scenes where stray dogs and humans live in perpetual danger.

    Hello@ Zaheer Ahmed, posters and others living in Mysore
    When your PM Narendra Modi, CM Bommai and ofcourse MP Simha congregate to see Modi inaugurating this 10-lane Highway and bull shitting about how India has been an advanced tech country etc.. etc.., just remind him, Bommai and Simha about the stray dogs in Mysore ruling the streets.
    @ Zaheer Ahmed “No advanced country in the world is plagued by such scenes where stray dogs and humans live in perpetual danger”
    True, but you need to convince some posters like M.A Khan, Sunil, Akhil etc.. who think that their country is the best, proud of its techie advancements-after all it carries out cheap labour because of worthless INR value internationally.
    The Austrlian history tells us the stray dogs taken by criminals who were deported to Australia 200 years ago from England, became the wild dogs called :Dingos. Stray dogs if allowed to roam and survive, become wild dogs like wild animals in the forest, and that is the case here,. This is a danger metamorphosis of stray dogs in Mysore-they used to be at best a nuisance, and now they are as dangerous as a pack of wolves.
    50 years ago, we used to calmly stroll through the footpaths and take a walk without being menaced by stray dogs and cars. These days, there are no footpaths-vendors have taken over to set up stalls for business, by bribing the police and MCC officials,. Where there is some space for pedestrians,, they encounter filth in the form of faeces and urine, as the space is used as toilet etc..
    So, Mysore now is two different city 1. the city of stray dogs, footpath vendors, streets used as toilets 2. The city which connects to Bangalore through a 10-lane Highway, an air ports soon to receive jet passenger liners , and the trains like VB express connecting to other states.
    What a glory! Be ashamed, as this is third world India , whatever Narendra Modi boasts about this Tech India nonsense.

    Stray dog menace has become a serious concern in Mysore. Every area is plagued by dogs which have become dangerous. After 6 pm people cannot come out of their house as these dogs are more violent during these times.. Request the authorities to take action on this quickly..
