'Jallikkettu' during lockdown; fireforce defeats buffalo in cinematic style in Kochi
Kochi: A buffalo that ran amok here creating panic was adventurously tamed by its owner and fireforce. The buffalo broke the rope near Kaloor Pavakkulam temple on Thursday by 10.30 in the morning. Watching this, the owner of the buffalo informed the police. They called Gandhinagar fireforce for help.
Later, the fireforce personnel spotted the aggressive buffalo near Kaloor area. During the attempt to get hold of the animal, it tried to attack the fireforce staff. They saved themselves by climbing on a wall nearby.
The hours-long effort ended when the fireforce officers trapped the buffalo into a net. The tamed buffalo was later handed over to the owner. As there were no people on the road due to the coronavirus prevention lockdown, no casualties occurred.
