The Kerala man, who is a native of Varandarappily informed his employer that his father has been bitten by a stray god and was hospitalized, due to which he won’t be able to come to work on Monday. The local media, after learning about the incident, rushed to the source to further ask him about the dog bite story.

The Kerala man, despite knowing he is telling a lie, tried to sell the lie by sharing a made-up story with the media as well as locals. The truth about the incident, however, came to light after one of the local media reporters rushed to the father’s residence, who was the supposed victim of the dog bite, where the media uncovered that the story was a lie.

Their bright son’s idea or excuse of skipping work went from amusing to bad when the local media channels filed a case against the man for sharing wrong information. It is fitting to say that this will be a good learning experience for the man to not tell lies, atleast such serious lies for a trivial office leave.

The cases of dog bites in the state of Kerala had rampantly climbed up after which many districts and regions saw people poisoning or killing stray dogs in their area. In light of the issue, the Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan, issued a public statement where he urged the public to not take laws into their own hands and further informed the public about his plans to launch an anti-rabies vaccination campaign in the state.

The state government is carrying out an anti-rabies vaccination program statewide from mid-September to mid-October and has been working on establishing more Animal Birth Control (ABC) centers for the sterilization process of stray dogs.
