Shirva locals had an unusual adventure this month. Everything started with the Sapaliga family searching for their pet dog. They found it in the open well. The dog was chased by a hungry leopard who went hunting near Shirva. Both animals accidentally fell into the well, but were rescued by locals and forest personnel who used cages to catch exhausted “adventurers”. The dog has been returned to its master. As for the leopard, it was transported to the National Reserve Forest at Kudremukh.
