It is said that the father of the boy, who is a daily wage labourer had gone to work on Sunday morning. The boy who came out of the house at the same time was attacked by around 20 stray dogs.

He was severely injured in the attack and collapsed on the road. A passerby chased away the dogs but the boy had breathed his last by then.

Villagers expressed rage at the local administration for not taking any action despite their repeated complaints about street dog menace in the area.

    It's pointless discussing here because people are so selfish that they think that world is only for human population. If it was so full 🌍 would go depressed. Anyways my point is govt should take action soon, do some bandabasth for stray animals. V middle should simply fight as usual, the BPL card ppl who r actually richer than APL, get all support from govt even the voting rights is same, they even get paid for voting. Sufferers r the middle class, no good salary and die paying tax and bills.

    When a street dog is killed, news spreads like wildfire. People are accused, forwards on social media, petitions signed by some jobless people. And the person's life is made miserable by all these Animal lovers and Activists. If they claim responsibility for a dead dog, then where are they when a dog attacks or kills a human?

    Animals don't create pollution in the world. Animals don't make ur life difficult. It's human who makes all pollution, terror. Population of dogs must b decreased. This world is not just for humans it's also for animals. Because of over human population thr is unemployment, deforestation , polution, bad diseases, wars, poverty, traffic, etc. Everything bad. Govt should take measures to control human as well as stray population. For humans more than two children should not be allowed.

    In India almost all local administrations are near dysfunctional. They think that being elected is just an opportunity given by society to them to improve their financial position. This must change. Corporators or councillors must be entrusted with the responsibility of suggesting developmental works for their wards. Maintenance and execution must be the responsibility of a directly elected Mayor with strict audits to ensure proper utilization of funds. Heads must roll when fraud is detected.

    We have not elected the government to take care or control the dogs. They have other dogs to control. If you feel that dogs shouldn't be kept hungry then feed them inside your house. You dog lovers are feeding the dogs on the streets at the cost of someones life.

    Sterilizing stray dogs is not a solution. A hungry sterilized dog will still bite children and possibly cause deaths. The municipality must take away stray dogs to a kennel and keep them away from Human Population otherwise the next victim could be your child.

    Dog leash laws are prevalent in most advanced nations, owners of dogs are held responsible for death or injury caused by dogs which are not on leash. We have made so many positive changes towards civic life in India, it is time stray dogs are contained. It is the responsibility of the local governments. I am surprised the stray dog menace has escaped the notice of young zealous Deputy Commissioners. The local and state health government should be held responsible for loss of life and injury caused by these stray dogs.

    Here also because of a dog and it's pea brained master, a big political party lost the whole of North - East. So with dogs you can never say. Stray dogs cause greater harm, are dangerous, cause comments going astray and all that stuff, but reared, well bred dog too can result you in losing States in India.

Because of this stray dogs whow many children losed their life. Brainless people only are behind this stray dogs . Those stray dogs lovers, take the dogs to their home. No problem for public. Feeding them in parks or public place is meaningless.

    Very tragic. Whenever I hear these news it sends chill in my spine as it brings back a sad memory which would have turned tragic if not for a quick reaction of a good samaritan passing by. My son who was probably 4 years old was just let off kindergarten in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada) and as our house was nearby, he didn't wait for his mother to fetch him. While he was walking home he was attacked by a b big dog and tore of his clothes and about to maul him if not for the quick action of a samaritan who drove the dog away and brought our son home. We were indeed terrified. I was at work at the University and my wife was home with a two year old and was getting him ready to bring our bigger son home. These things happen. Dog is man's best friend, but the friend only of its master. Others are enemies and have to be controlled and put on leash. Should not be let loose as they are naturally wild. This happens not just in Canada but the only difference is there are no stray dogs running amok on streets. But individual dogs, especially pit bulls are a big menace and they attack and kill, and that is why they are banned. Owners are under strict personal and financial liability if they own one of them.

    Dogs are always known for their loyally and love towards its owner but during mating season dogs somehow become aggressive and especially in the case of stray dogs they attack other dogs and animals who they feel are coming their way, let alone humans. The municipality should take initiative to sterilize the dogs or else many innocent lives will be at danger.

    Asha L . Mangalore,stray dogs areare not to control when they are hungry,even they are sterelized or not.Then they are again animals.First these dogs should be cared whichever way one want either in homes for animals or on road.First of all how did they come so many on the road,?Why Panchayat not cared for them either by sterelizing or bring off from road.Otherwise it will end like they attack humans just like this boy.It is very hard to believe a eleven years boy was mauled.Ifeel sorry for his parents .Heartfelt symypathy to the parentsPanchayat must pay to them some compansation to the parents.because Panchayat failed in their duties.These dogs may spread infection and disease like rabies.Panchayat should immediately start look into this.

    Fully agree with you. The same should go for human male wild strays who engage in gang rape. They are even worsse than these stray dogs because stray dogs do not rape and murder, they just maul and kill. These human wild strays go and gang rape and murder, and should suffer the same fate, even worse than the stray wild animals.
