On Wednesday, a three-year-old boy was attacked by five stray dogs in Uttar Pradesh's Mathura. The dogs attacked him viciously before dragging him into a construction site. However, the boy was rescued by locals. Following the incident, Sarvagya Ram Mishra, District Magistrate of Mathura, said action will be taken immediately and the issue will be resolved within two days.
Every year, dozens of children are killed by dogs. The frequent attacks have prevented people from sending their children outside to play. In another case, a seven-year-old girl was killed by canines in the Barsana area of Mathura district in May.
