In a similar incident earlier, a toddler was mauled to death in an apartment building last year by a stray dog. The incident triggered massive disquiet among residents. Reacting to the death of a five-year-old boy, who succumbed to injuries after he was mauled by a pack of stray dogs in Telangana, state minister KT Rama Rao on Tuesday said that he would work in full capacity to ensure such incidents do not repeat in future.
“We’ve been trying to tackle street dog menace in our municipalities. We’ve created animal care centers and animal birth control centers. My sincere condolences to the family and we’ll ensure that our best is done so that these incidents are not repeated,” stated the BRS leader.
