Cow, Fox in Company in Death at Live Electric Cable!

Bantwal: In a curious incident, a cow and a fox were found dead together at an electric fence near the Vinayaka Sadashiva temple in Ammunje in the taluk on Sunday morning.

On account of heavy rainstorm on Saturday night, an overhead high-tension electric cable had snapped, with power flowing in it. A cow, belonging to Vinay, came into contact with it and was electrocuted. The same fate awaited a fox which came in search of food. It too died of electric shock.


Another cow, belonging to Lakshmi, came into contact but it saved itself by retreating in time. Another woman who came by the way also escaped in time.

The MESCOM staff arrived immediately and averted further damage.
