Residents have challenged Kariba Municipality and the Department of Veterinary Services to urgently act following an increase in the number of stray dogs that are attacking people in the resort town.
The call follows an attack of five people by vicious dogs last week.
Two victims were attacked in Nyamhunga 1, Ministry area, and the other two were attacked in Mahombekombe suburbs with one of them battling for his life at Kariba hospital. He was chased by dogs and fell on fire resulting in his whole body being burnt.
Some of the victims and relatives who spoke to RBD news said Kariba Municipality and the Veterinary services should act before rabies take root.
When contacted for comment Kariba Municipality Public Relations Officer Gabriel Mazivofa said as Council they were disheartened by the increasing incidences of dog bites and encouraged residents to keep an eye on their animals and ensure they were vaccinated.
