Rottweiler Saves A Woman From Tiger Attack

Rottweiler Saves A Woman From Tiger Attack

Rottweiler saves a woman , A middle-aged woman survived a Tiger attack in Kruger National Park, thanks to her two Rottweiler dogs. Megan Bongi, 48, was visiting the park for the first time, accompanied by her two dogs, when a Tiger pounced on her from nowhere. Her two dogs attacked the aggressive big cat, forcing it to leave the woman alone so as to fend off the unexpected danger. Circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear.

The shocking incident, which occurred last Saturday, has elicited mixed reaction from the public with some pointing an accusing finger to the park’s management, accusing them of laxity. However, most importantly, the debacle has awakened an unprecedented interest in the little-known breed of dogs. According to Charles Mpho, a South African based zoologist, a Rottweiler “is not your ordinary dog”. Originally bred to help control cattle in the early days, the dog has found a new place in the military, police department and in civilian use as home guards. The Rottweiler is a large powerful dog endowed with great endurance; hence, could hold its own against a Tiger.

Training
Following the spectacular save from the jaws of the Tiger, details have now emerged about the relationship between Megan and the two dogs. “I bought the two dogs a few years ago when they were puppies,” the woman spoke after receiving treatment and added that they had become a family. She had hired a dog expert who trained the dogs in anything and everything “including giving me company’” Megan adds pensively.

A game of death
Witnesses tell of a bone-jarring tussle between the dogs and the Tiger. “It was nothing like anything I had ever imagined,” says Jack, who was also visiting the park for the first time. He shudders to imagine what would have happened had the dogs lost the fight. For a heart-stopping moment, dog and Tiger wrestled, went for the jugular and sought a technical knock-out. However, it did not take long before the Lion was outnumbered and overpowered. Sensing an opening, the dogs instinctively went for the kill. In the end, three animals lay heap: the Rottweilers, wounded and exhausted; the Tiger, dead.

Wounded limbs
It is surprising how the two Rottweiler dogs survived the sharp lashes from the Tiger’s strong teeth. Though they won the fight, it was not without a cost. One Rottweiler will have to walk on three legs for the rest of its life, having lost the other to the Tiger’s unforgiving canines. However, the dog had given its all into the fight, standing on three legs. It was clearly a matter of life and death, and the dogs knew it owing to their intense training and instinct. The other dog, though with all its four feet intact, can hardly walk – muscles and tendons having been painfully torn apart by the Tiger.

Immense goodwill
The incident has attracted enormous goodwill from locals, who are now flocking Megan’s home with all manner of gifts. A local politician is said to have offered her an undisclosed sum of money. In spite of the messages and gestures of goodwill, one thing is clear for Megan: No more park visits for the rest of her life.
