MADIKERI: Tasma Dechamma is unlikely to forget January 27 in a hurry.
Around 8am on Wednesday, the PU student was walking to the bus stop in T Shettigeri village when she spotted a tiger strolling out of a coffee estate towards her. The teenager fainted, though fortunately for her, the tiger walked away in the opposite direction. Villagers rushed the girl to a hospital in Srimangala, where she calmed down and was treated for shock.
The village is located on the border of Brahmagiri wildlife sanctuary.
According to her parents Muthppa and Bharathi, their daughter, a student of Gonikoppal Vidyaniketan College, left home early in the morning as she was havng unit tests. She usually takes a bus from T Shettigeri to reach Gonikoppal. It was on the way to the bus stop that she spotted the big cat. A passerby who too saw the tiger rushed to the girl’s help when she fainted.
When Tasma gained consciousness, she started saying, “Tiger, tiger, huli, huli,” said the doctor who attended on her. “It will take some time for the shock to wear off,” he told her parents.
Srimangala RFO Veerendra Mari Basavannanavar visited the hosiptal and told forest staff to begin combing the area to trace the tiger. The RFO said a cage will be kept to trap the animal and requested villagers to cooperate.
