Stray dogs ‘devour’ 65 year old

Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 20 (IANS) In a gruesome incident, a 65-year-old woman was attacked and partly eaten up by 50 stray dogs on Friday night barely 10 km from the state secretariat here.

Victim, Sheeluamma died in the Medical College hospital here. Angry relatives and residents of the area have blamed the city authority for her death.

“We have lost all our patience as the authorities are hanging on to some obscure law which says dogs cannot be eliminated. Are we inferior to these dogs,” asked a group of angry residents in Pulluvilla.

The incident took place around 9 p.m. in the coastal village Pulluvilla about 30 minutes from the state capital when Sheeluamma went to the seafront to use a toilet there.

Her son witnessed her being torn up by the hungry canines when he came searching for her. He had to dive into the sea to save himself from the dogs.

An hour later after Sheeluamma’s death, another 50 year old, Daisy was attacked by a group of dogs in a nearby locality on the seafront.
