Mokkusu took the cow to his farmland around 7:30 am for grazing and they were accompanied by his dog. The cow ran into the power cable which had snapped on the field due to heavy rainfall the night before. The cow was instantly electrocuted and fell down.

According to the Times of India the dog was around 6 years old and he accompanied Makkusu every day on his daily routine. The villagers mourned the tragic incident and praised the dog for his bravery.
