Malappuram, Aug 31: At least 40 persons including two children were hospitalized after they were bitten by a stray dog here on Wednesday, police said.

The dog targeted passers-by one after the other, at Chungathara in Nilambur, leaving them bleeding, the sources said.

While 20 of the injured had been admitted to the Nilambur Taluk Hospital, 17 persons had been rushed to the Kozhikode Medical College for want of better medical services on a day, which has already been affected by the state-wide doctors' strike demanding higher wages.

Frantic attempts by the people to stone the dog turned futile as the animal gave them the slip every time it bit a person, they said.
