Leopard attacks an 8 year old at Sanjay Gandhi National Park
- Barkha Dutt, Staff Reporter
Mumbai, 10th January 2020
Another incident at Sanjay Gandhi National Park was reported where an 8 year old was attacked by a leopard yesterday morning. The boy escaped with minimal injuries but was truly shaken by the incident.
The incident occurred while the boy was visiting the national park with his parents. While at the leopard enclosure, the boy got a little too close to the railing and fell in. The leopard inside the enclosure scratched him with his paws. But before he could do some real damage, the authorities stepped in and managed to get the leopard away from the boy. The boy was safely taken out of the enclosure and given first-aid. He was later taken to the hospital where doctors assured him that his injuries were not severe. This is the third such incident that has happened this year. Earlier this year, two men were attacked by a leopard in the same National Park. The park authorities need to be monitored with respect to their job efficiency. If necessary safety measures are not taken soon enough, then the lives of the visitors shall remain at risk.
THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF
Once there was a boy who watched over the villagers’ sheep. To make his boring day interesting, the boy thought of tricking the villagers. He screamed “Wolf, wolf!”, so that the villagers would come running up the hill to drive away from the wolf, only to be fooled by his trick. The first time, the villagers left angrily. The boy continued to trick them over the next few days and they warned him that the next time he calls, they won’t come. One day, a wolf indeed arrived and started chasing the sheep. The boy called for help, but the villagers didn’t believe him and no one came to help. The wolf attacked all the sheep. That day, the boy decided never to lie again.
