Incidents of Dog Attacks on Humans in Urban Areas of India

G. Bhanuprakash | U. Madhusudhan | Md Abdul Mateen [2] | J Shashank

Abstract: The frequency of dog attacks is on the rise especially in urban areas. A number of cases have been reported from cities like Delhi, Bangalore, Chandigarh and Mumbai. The dogs involved were found to be normal and non-rabid. This drastic increase in the incidents can be due to inability of dogs to procure food as most of the waste material including food is being disposed off in garbage bags which are being taken outside the city and dumped in big dumping sites.
