An 11-year-old boy was critically injured after a Pit Bull attacked him while he was playing in a park in a horrific incident.
Last week, the event occurred in Ghaziabad’s Sanjay Nagar neighborhood. The boy received over 150 stitches.
CCTV footage uploaded to the internet shows a girl walking the Pit Bull in the park where the boy was also playing.
The dog suddenly charges at the youngster, knocking him to the ground. The vicious dog then bit the child in the face and ear.
He was saved by another young person who was present in the park.
According to reports, the boy’s face was badly wounded in the incident, requiring over 150 stitches.
No police report has been filed on this incident as of yet.
Owners face a Rs 5,000 fine.
Following the horrifying occurrence, the victim’s family accused the dog owners of irresponsibility for allowing the girl to carry the dangerous canine to a park where others, including children, were playing.
The Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation fined the dog’s owner Rs 5,000 and issued a notice for failing to register the pet with the municipality.
Gurugram Pit Bull Attack
Another Pit Bull assault was recorded in Gurugram in August when a 35-year-old lady was severely injured after being mauled by a domestic Dog.
Vinit Chikara, the pit bull’s owner, was walking his dog down the street when it suddenly pounced on the woman.
Chikara had left the dog’s harness unfastened, and the dog knocked the woman, Munni, down and bit her all over her body.
Pit Bull killed the owner
Sushila Tripathi, an 82-year-old woman from Lucknow, was killed in July after being attacked by the family’s beloved Dog.
Sushila, a retired schoolteacher, shared her home with her son Amit. A pit bull and a labrador were the family’s pets. Her son, a gym trainer, was at work when the dog attacked the elderly grandmother.
Following the recent attacks on humans by Pit Bulls, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India sought a ban on keeping, breeding, and selling dogs for unlawful fighting, as well as the closure of illegal pet stores and breeders.
“These attacks serve as a wake-up warning that if India continues to breed dogs, which are often employed for brutal human exploits such as unlawful dogfighting, more humans will be harmed. A ban on all breeds used for illegal combat would prevent these dogs from being born only to endure abuse and misery, as well as many humans “Dr. Nithin Krishnegowda, Veterinary Policy Advisor of PETA India, stated.
