Dogbite victims to get Rs 10000 per teeth mark:- The Punjab and Haryana High Court recently made a significant ruling regarding compensation and responsibility in cases of attacks by stray animals. According to the ruling, the State will be primarily responsible for paying compensation in instances of attacks by stray animals, such as dogs and cattle. This ruling has sparked a debate on the stray dog menace in the country. The ruling comes at a time when there has been increasing concern over the stray dog population and the dangers they pose to public safety.
One particular incident that brought attention to this issue was the death of a 49-year-old man who suffered a hemorrhage after being attacked by a stray dog. The court's ruling emphasizes the importance of addressing the issue of stray animals and ensuring that victims receive proper compensation for their injuries. It also highlights the need for better animal control laws, public education on responsible dog ownership, and stronger enforcement of these laws. The responsibility for resolving the stray dog issue should involve multiple sectors of society, including animal welfare NGOs, veterinary doctors, and public authorities. This interdisciplinary approach is crucial to effectively manage the stray dog population and mitigate the risks they pose.
