A four-year-old boy in The Fresco, a condominium in Sector 50, Gurugram, was mauled by stray dogs this week, leaving the residents angry. His father, Rohan Deshmukh, narrated the whole incident to a leading national daily saying that his son was playing in the society when a group of stray dogs attacked him. The child had one big bite and multiple wounds all over the body.
On Wednesday, the residents of the condominium met the sub-divisional magistrate and MCG commissioner and demanded an immediate solution to the dog menace.

They told the commissioner that ever since a few residents began feeding the dogs, they have been roaming around freely in the society and the number of the dogs has increased.
The residents had filed a complaint with the MCG to get the dogs removed, however, an animal rights NGO contradicted the residents by telling the MCG that the dogs were friendly and harmful. The residents had also approached the police station in Sector 50, Gurugram but were sent back without any help or support.
Another resident of the society said, ‘no country allows stray dogs to roam freely, but in our country, in the name of animal rights, people forget the human rights of kids.’
The stray dog menace is widespread in Gurugram. In DLF Phase 1, Arjun Marg as well, one of the residents shared his fear of the stray dogs around his house on a Gurugram specific group on Facebook.
