Stray dogs attack boy in Lucknow
On Tuesday, a similar incident was also reported from Lucknow, where a 13-year-old boy was left injured in an attack by stray dogs.
The incident took place in Jankipuram Srishti Apartments, an LDA high-rise building.
“The pack of three-four dogs suddenly attacked Raj Aryan when he was playing in the building lawn. He sustained injuries in his legs,” the boy’s mother said.
Fifth case in two months
According to residents, this is the fifth such case in the same building within just two months.
“Due to multiple dog bites, the residents of the building have now started going out with sticks or in groups. These attacks are often ignored by concerned authorities until a big incident takes place,” Vivek Sharma, an RWA member said.
Chief Veterinary Officer Abhinav Verma said that most of the areas near Srishti Apartment are high rises.
“Dogs are not being fed enough. It may be one of the reasons making them aggressive. A majority of dogs are yet to be sterilised but we have dispatched a vehicle to capture them,” he said.
New rules for those adopting stray dogs
Recently the Urban Development Department in Uttar Pradesh issued new rules for breeders, residents’ welfare associations and individuals who adopt stray dogs in large numbers. Registration of stray dogs will be done without any fees.
While registration of stray dogs will be done without any fees along with sterilisation and first vaccination, individuals and resident groups looking to adopt five or more stray dogs will be treated at par with shelter homes and will have to adhere to the guidelines framed by the Animal Welfare Board of India.
