“My son was coming home from his tuition class in the neighbouring tower when a Beagle accompanied by an old woman bit him on his leg inside the lift. I was waiting on the ground floor when he came out crying and limping. After he told me what happened, I found the woman in the basement and confronted her. She refused to answer when I asked about her whereabouts. On being asked if the dog was vaccinated, she asked me to leave her alone. I later asked the guard for the CCTV footage and filed a complaint with the police”, the boy’s father said.

I’m not against pets if you have them it’s your responsibility to keep in control at public places. Very insensitive behaviour towards this child. https://t.co/QaO0MhOu60— Meenu Tiwari🍀🌼 (@MeenuTiwari) September 6, 2022
Kindness can’t be measured by anyone’s affinity towards animals. This is not just shocking but quite a trend now.. Undervaluing human lives over their pets. https://t.co/PvVA6Ukwpe— Upamanyu Bhattacharya (@upamanyu70) September 6, 2022
Why is the woman so insensitive here? I am a big-time animal lover but being an irresponsible pet parent is totally not acceptable.— Aarohy Kapoor (@aarohy_kapoor) September 6, 2022
Either learn to be responsible or do not get a pet at all. Your dog can scar a kid forever and make him fear dogs forever. https://t.co/2JwHlsEcBX
These dog owners should be punished. She has absolutely no concerns towards the kid. Every society has so many such owners.— Rohit Vats (@nawabjha) September 6, 2022
This is not about animal rights, but about being careless.
What if it was a fatal bite? https://t.co/7PBQ1yOyyC
If you are a pet parent, please be more responsible.
