CHANDIGARH: A woman and her pet dog were attacked by five stray dogs in Sector 38 on Saturday night.
Rupali Saini, a resident of Sector 38, said she was going to the market with her one-and-a-half-year-old pug. As she reached near the market, five stray dogs attacked them. Somehow, Rupali managed to save herself, but her pet was injured. With the help of passers-by, Rupali shooed away the stray dogs. She immediately took her pet to a veterinary clinic in Sector 21 and provided the dog first-aid. The dog received six stiches, Rupali said.
Rupali said shopkeepers feed these stray dogs, who are always roaming in and around the market and attack kids and pets. She lodged a complaint against the Municipal Corporation Chandigarh(MCC) at the sector 39 police station. Police have registered a daily diary report (DDR). Rupali said she would file a complaint with municipal officials too.
