Soon, she is surrounded by around 5 dogs, and panicked by this sudden attack, she momentarily stops there and cried for help. Subsequently, she tries to escape from the dogs and ran to find a cover. But the canines started chasing and pouncing on her. The dogs started attacking and biting her.
Meanwhile, a delivery boy who was passing from there came to her rescue. He chased the dogs away and saved the life of the innocent child.
These increasing number of dog attacks have been ringing the alarm bells, especially in residential societies. Following the Ghaziabad City-1 incident, the residents expressed concerns for the safety of their children. They have been raising questions about the entry of street animals and the animal lovers who have been pressuring the security guards to allow animals inside the society.
However, Surbhi Rawat, president of Peoples for Animals (PFA) Ghaziabad, alleged that the residents of the society are the ones who have to be blamed for these rampant attacks. She claimed that the residents of the society have been trampling dogs and their puppies beneath their vehicles. She claimed that these ‘merciless’ killings have made these animals violent which leads to such attacks.
She argued that when we as humans are carrying out the shameful acts of killing dogs and puppies, how can we expect anything different from animals?
