Dogs Create Panic in Pakistan City

Islamabad: Two rabid dogs bit scores of people in the Pakistani city of Rawalpindi, creating widespread panic before they could be cornered and killed, media reports said Saturday. //

In separate incidents in Islamabad's twin city Friday, the sick animals set upon on a total of 77 passers-by, mainly women and children on their way to school and work.

Anti-rabies vaccine was rushed from the capital for the victims while health workers and members of the public, armed with sticks and stones, mounted a long chase in pursuit of the dogs, the Dawn reported.

A man on a motorbike eventually killed one of the animals, while frenzied pursuers on foot dispatched another 35 stray dogs before eliminating the second.

'It was an extraordinary situation,' said Saeed Anwar Shah of the Rawalpindi General Hospital, where many people were treated.

Rabies is endemic to Pakistan. While there is no exact data on the incidence of attacks, rough estimates suggest that it causes up to 5,000 deaths a year.
