22 people attacked by stray dogs
At least 22 people, including a girl, were injured when stray dogs attacked them here this morning.
One of them was admitted to Kozhikode Medical college hospital with serious injuries and administered the anti-Rabies Serum. A dog bit 16 people near the collectorate office, when they were walking on the side of the road at around 1100 hrs.
Local people tried to kill the dog but the canine ran away. Six others also suffered dog bite in other parts of the district, said Medical Officer (DMO) Dr K J Reena.
They were rushed to the district hospital and administered vaccine. But many of them were in panic due to the shortage of anti-serum for dog bite.
