The Indian Army carried leopard’s urine to scare the dogs during the 2016 surgical strike inside Pakistan territory.
On Wednesday Lt Gen Rajendra Nimbhorkar – a senior Army officer who participated in the surgical strikes said that the Indian Army troops carried leopard’s urine and faeces to keep dogs ‘away’ from the advancing teams.
“There was a possibility of dogs in villages barking at us on the route. I knew they are scared of leopards. We carried leopard urine with us and that worked & dogs didn’t dare to come forward,” Nimbhorkar said.
Nimbhorkar was the Brigade commander in the Nowshera sector when he had undertaken a detailed study of the biodiversity of the terrain.
