Some 30 people were bitten by a dog said to be suffering from rabies and admitted to Vavuniya Hospital on Wednesday. The dog had caused havoc in Vavuniya town last afternoon by biting people indiscriminately.
 
It was ultimately caught by the people in the area last evening and handed over to the police. Police had handed it over to health officers who had confirmed that the dog was suffering from rabies. (Romesh Madhushanka)

    most of the comments made shows the mental stress and education level of the readers.

    I feel sorry for you and "Chandrapala" over here.. there is a reason why dogs are called mans best friend.. and the fact that you guys hate dogs so much tells me that neither of you are even capable of having a relationship with an animal.. You two are made for each other.. Pathetic..

    Is it a dog or a puppy?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:38 AM

    Is this one of the rabid dogs who raped under-age girls, that one UPFA Minister referred to recently.

    Cobra Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:38 AM

    No, he was in Batti gorging himself of those Karthankudi dates. Rabid dogs in Batti would have given him a wide berth anyway!!!

    Maheshwaran Appu Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:05 AM

    Similar incident taken place in Battaramulla 2,3 yrs ago. We can see lot of stray dogs here and there. It is reported that nearly 2000 victims getting treatments everyday for dog bites and large number of victims died due to rabies. It seems that govt prefer dogs than ordinary people.

    Just like a SL Government

    sg Thursday, 19 July 2012 01:58 AM

    Call for the animal rights organizations and rescue these dogs.

    CHANDRAPALA Thursday, 19 July 2012 01:36 AM

    Where are the animal rights activities and dogs lovers?

    nicky karunarathna Thursday, 19 July 2012 01:00 AM

    How about sending those dog lovers who were perading in Colombo recently to Vauniya giving free transport to settle issues immediately please. It is the government responsibility to track those dog lovers and herd them in Vauniya.

    First I thought it was a politician

    Anuradhapura Arnolis Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:50 AM

    Kill the street dogs. Humans lives are more important than dog lives.

    Let the animal welfare guys take on the chicken hatcheries where they feed thousands of day old male chicks to pigs while they are still alive.

    Powerless Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:55 AM

    The country is being terrorized by dogs.
