Despite eight people being attacked by rabid dog during the last two days, the residents of Cheranalloor allege that the authorities have done nothing in this regard.

According to the health inspector of Cheranalloor Primary Health Centre, a rabid dog went wild attacking many, including a child, last Thursday. “The dog was a domestic one and it attacked many, including a child and a woman who tried to save the child.

All the injured ones have been administered vaccinations.

The dog was beaten to death and the autopsy on the animal at Mannuthi Veterinary College confirmed that it was rabid,”  said health inspector Santhosh K P.

Sony Chikku, councillor, Cheranalloor Panchayat said the authorities were  reluctant to take any action owing to the order banning killing stray dogs.

“No measures have been taken yet to sterilise the dogs. We are awaiting a response fron the District Collector,” she said. When contacted Jayaraj, assistant secretary of the panchayat, said they have done everything possible in this regard.
