On Thursday, when Kunjaram Yadav and his wife Phoolwati entered a jungle in the buffer zone of the Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh in search of their missing cow, they were unaware of what was lying in wait for them.
The sun was about to set when they entered the Jhangul beat in Mandla’s Bamhani Range. After walking for a while, the couple was stunned to see two tigers guarding their dead cow. Now the challenge was to escape from there. Luckily they had been accompanied by a bodyguard in the form of their pet dog.
The tigers snarled viciously before suddenly leaping at them, the Times of India reported. Seeing the tigers attack his owners, the dog jumped between them and started barking furiously before charging at the big cats.
