Once upon a time in Tasikmalaya, West Java, there lived a young couple. They work as farmers and the happiness this couple feels is complete because of the presence of their baby. The couple also keeps several animals. One of them is a tiger, they call him Loreng.
Loreng is very obedient to the couple because they have been cared for since they were babies, and are treated with great affection. While the couple worked in the fields, the tiger took care of their baby. One day, as usual the couple went to the rice fields. Before leaving, they asked Loreng to look after their baby.
“Length, We’re going to the fields now. Take care of our baby, okay?” The tiger nodded.
Then the couple went to the fields and they worked from morning to evening. While the couple was working, the stripe came to the field where they worked. The tiger was acting different than usual, he wagged his tail and rubbed his body against the couple’s feet. He looked so happy, the couple became suspicious.
“Why is Loreng acting weird? He’s not acting like normal? ‘ asked the wife.
“Yes my dear, this is strange. What happened?” said the husband.
“Dear! See ..!” his wife shouted, “his mouth is covered in fresh blood.”
Her husband also looked at the tiger carefully, he was surprised. The tiger’s mouth was full of blood, then he remembered the baby and thought the tiger had eaten their baby.
“Why is your mouth full of blood, Loreng? ‘ he asked the tiger.
“You must have done something bad to my baby! Did you kill him? Why did you do that?” she panicked.
Loreng shook his head because he didn’t do that. The husband took the wood and beat the tiger angrily and furiously until Si Loreng was seriously injured.
“Dear! Come on, hurry home!” said the wife.
They then ran home leaving the injured Loreng, then they both went into the house. They were shocked and looked at each other as their baby was sleeping soundly in his cradle. The cub was not eaten by the tiger. Quickly, the wife took the baby and kissed it. The baby woke up opening his eyes and smiling. Then the couple found a very large snake under the swing, the snake was dead and covered in blood.
“Oh, my wife,” said the husband realizing his mistake.
“We have done a very bad thing. The stripe is innocent! Look at that dead snake. That stripe must have killed him to save our baby. Oh, my God! What have I done? I am very sorry. I’m sorry Loreng. Please forgive me?” The couple felt very guilty.
The couple immediately picked up the stripe to heal his wounds, they apologized for the mistakes they had done. It all happened because they did not check the baby first before they beat the stripe.
From then on, the couple’s village was called Blame Village. The word Panyalahan comes from the word “wrong” with the intention of making the wrong decision. According to those from Panyalahan village, until now any weapon is invulnerable to killing tigers, this happened because in Panyalahan village a terrible event had occurred, namely the loyal Loreng was beaten until he was seriously injured because he made a hasty decision.
