A mother loves and protects her child like no one! The saying was proved true by a feisty tribal woman from a Madhya Pradesh village who displayed immense courage and snatched away her son from the claws of a leopard while fighting valiantly with the carnivore. Despite her son being suddently taken away by the leopard, the woman did not lose her presence of mind as she con- fined her other children inside her hut and rushed towards a forest in the direction where the feline had taken away her eight-year-old son. The child was wounded and the woman also suffered injuries when the leopard attacked her, but she managed to come back alive with her son, an act of strength and grit which was hailed by the forest dept staff and CM Chouhan. The incident took place on Sunday night in Badi Jharia village, in the buffer zone of the Sanjay Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh's Sidhi district, located over 500 from the state capital Bhopal. Kiran, a Baiga tribe woman, was sitting beside a fire with her three children to keep them warm outside their hut. Suddenly, a leopard appeared there and in a split moment caught hold of her son Rahul with its jaws and ran away, a senior forest official said on Wednesday. The woman was shocked by the sudden turn of events, but kept her cool. She made her other two children stay put inside the hut and immediately ran towards the forest where she saw the leopard taking away with her son, the tiger reserve's director, Y P Singh, said. She chased the leopard for about a kilometre, but the big cat took cover in the bushes holding the child with its claws. Kiran also did not relent.
