Feral dogs in India
An eight-year-old girl was attacked and killed by a group of stray dogs in Poolpur village of Hasanpur tehsil on Sunday afternoon.

According to the girl's father, the attack occurred when she had stepped out to throw waste into the jungle. He said about eight-10 stray dogs had attacked her and she was lying in a pool of blood when he found her. He rushed her to the community health centre at Hasanpur, where doctors declared her brought dead.

The village residents blamed the local administration for not paying attention to the incidents of the stray dogs in villages here.

Amroha SDM Azad Bhagat Singh told TOI, "All executive officers of nagar palika have been ordered to appoint teams of workers to catch stray dogs from villages along with teams of veterinary doctors and compounders and sterilize them."
