A video from UP’s Ghaziabad has surfaced where an 11-year-old boy was bitten by a dog in the society apartment. The video comes to light at a time when a number of incidents of a similar nature across the country have emerged. In the video, a dog can be seen standing idly as 2 kids who are just minding their own business and were strolling past the dog suddenly faced a turn of events.
The kid who was walking past the dog suddenly got chased after and later, bitten on his legs by the dog. The video comes from the Amrapali society apartment in Ghaziabad’s Indirapuram.
The video has become a cautionary tale yet again as this marks to be another dog-biting incident that has plagued the country.
A Twitter while watching the video remarked that it seemed as if the dog was waiting for the child to come out so that it could charge at him and he attack the kid, adding and highlighting the attack behavior mentality the dog portrayed, insinuating a bigger question of how domesticated are these stray dogs.
A video of a similar nature was recently reported in Kerala’s Kozhikode where a boy, who was driving his cycle, was suddenly charged by a dog who jumped at him and made him lose his balance, leading to the boy falling. After the fall, the boy can be seen getting bitten and dragged ruthlessly by the dog, first in by his leg and then by his hand.
The boy, who somehow managed to escape from the jaws of the dog rushed into his home as the dog ran away. The video had caused quite a stir in Kerala, which led to people killing or poisoning dogs in many regions of Kerala.
The Kerala government, owing to a vast amount of cases of dog bites reported as well citizens resorting to the killing of dogs, had come forward and asked the people to not request the citizens not take such drastic measures while also announcing to set up more Animal Birth Control (ABC) centers for carrying out anti-rabies vaccination starting from mid-September to mid-October.
