Odisha minister orders removal of stray dogs from road after Hyderabad incident

Bhubaneswar: Couple of days after a four-year-old boy was mauled to death by stray dogs in Hyderabad, Odisha Animal Resources Development Minister Ranendra Pratap Swain has ordered for removal of the animals from roads in the state.

The minister has directed the CDVOs of all districts to remove stray dogs from roads.

They have also been instructed to take immediate and proper action in this regard.

Notably, the boy namely Pradeep was mauled to death by stray dogs in Bagh Amberpet area of Hyderabad on Sunday. He died before his father took him to a nearby hospital.

The heart-wrenching incident occurred in a car servicing centre where the boy’s father Gangadhar was working as watchman.

Sunday being a holiday, Gangadhar had taken his wife, six-year-old daughter and son Pradeep to show them his place of work. After leaving his wife and daughter in a cabin in the parking area, Gangadhar took his son into the service centre.

When Gangadhar left with another watchman to some other area for some work, Pradeep started walking towards the parking area to play with his sister. Suddenly a pack of stray dogs attacked him. When the child fell down, they all pounced on him and bit him all over.

Hearing the cries of her brother, the girl rushed there and ran out to call his father. Gangadhar chased away the dogs and took the badly injured son to a hospital but by then he had succumbed.
