Mangaluru: Animal lover Rajani Shetty climbs down 50-foot well to save dog

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Apr 12: Rajani Shetty from Ballalbagh in the city, who is well known for her passion to rescue and provide food and shelter to the hungry street dogs, has now gone down a well as she has done before, to rescue a dog.

In February last year, she had saved a dog that had accidentally fallen into a well. This time, she got a phone call to inform her that a dog had fallen into a well located in the compound of a house that is unoccupied. The dog had fallen there on Friday night.

Rajani immediately went there, duly accompanied by her husband Damodar, and daughters Shwetha and Rithika. As the depth of the well was only about 50 feet, the dog had not suffered any serious injury, and it was on one side of the well. Rajani went down with the help of a rope. Even though she felt suffocated, she recovered soon and tied a rope around the dog and asked it to be rescued. Later, she came up with the help of rope.

Rajani said that there was no one when four of them went there. She revealed that as the well was unused for long, there were bats inside. She said that the dog was not hurt. She also revealed that it is a street dog, and that has been taken away by a neighbour for taking care of it.

    This lady displayed exemplary courage and true love towards the voiceless. God bless her. She did what most people cannot even dare do. Being a lady did not deter her, she put her life at stake and risked it all. Equal credit to her family who backed her up. Speechless!🙏

    This act of compassion (Karuna) is of highest karma, that too saving an animal/bird etc. And here we have this brave lady who scaled down a deep unused well just to save a dog, hats off to you. Humans are losing compassion to each other, how can they love/save animals. This can only be done with people of pure & brave hearts, I salute them all, including this brave-heart.
