Accordingly officials of Bengaluru’s civic body the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike say that since a dog count has not been done, it is impossible to know. Meanwhile even after three incidents of dog bites recently, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike is yet to swing into action and conduct a stray dog count.
Reports added five persons including two children were bitten by dogs in Rajaji Nagar’s 6th Stage on Thursday. Meanwhile among them were 14 year old Akash and 5 year old Saisiri, while Akash suffered only minor injuries, Saisiri is being nursed at a hospital but thankfully is out of danger. Accordingly others affected included Saisiri’s grandmother, who was on the way to drop her granddaughter off at school, and another woman named Manjula.
Further Akash, a student of St. Mira School, was walking towards the
school when he was bitten by a stray dog. Selvi Krishna mother says "Few
metres outside the school entrance, a dog bit him on the legs and hands.
Immediately, the teachers in the school responded and ensured he was given treatment”.
Recently a complaint was filed by the school’s authorities to the BBMP over the
issue and a dog catcher was called in to take away four dogs in the area with
the issue of Animal Birth Control and the faulty methods applied in identifying
the number of stray dogs in the city is the reason for the cases of dog bites.
