Incredible! Woman Fights Off Tiger With A Stick, After It Attacks Her Goat

A lionhearted woman managed to scare off a hungry tiger – using only a stick, according to a report Wednesday. Rupali Meshram sprang into action when she heard her goat bleating last week in India’s Maharashtra state, according to media reports.The 23-year-old picked up a stick and began whacking the tiger, which then attacked her. She was rescued by her mother, Jijabhai, who pulled her into the house to safety. “I thought my daughter was going to die,” the mom said. Miraculously, Meshram and her mom – who suffered an injury near her eye – sustained just minor injuries. The goat, however, was not so lucky and could not be saved.The two snapped a selfie just after the attack, showing them covered in blood but otherwise okay. They called a forest range officer but the tiger ran off before he arrived 30 minutes later. A doctor who treated Meshram said she showed “exemplary courage” in beating the tiger and said she was lucky not to have been bitten. Meshram spent several days in the hospital for injuries to her head, waist, legs and hands before she was released Tuesday. “I am a bit worried about returning to my village so soon after an attack like this, but I am not scared,” she said.Photo Credit: Getty
