The incident took place in Mandla district of Madhya Pradesh with Kunjiram Yadav and his wife Phoolwati. According to a report in TOI, they had entered the Kanha forest in the evening to search for their cow with their pet dog along. Their cow belonged to the village deputy sarpanch. It was nearing dusk when they entered the Bamhani range in Mandla's forest area. As they walked, they saw two tigers feeding on other prey. Once the tiger saw the couple, he kept snarling at them.

According to forest official quoted to the media, "The dog apparently forced the two tigers to retreat." He also said that the tigers must have seen a ferocious barking dog for the first time, which confused them. "Wild dogs in the jungle don’t bark. So, they may have been surprised," he mentioned. The Yadav family was also provided with some financial help as he had to get some stitches from the injuries. It was indeed a heroic act of the dog. If both the tigers would have attacked it together, it would have definitely cost the lives of the dog as well as the owners, but the dog's courageous front has managed to save them all.
