In a surprising incident, Kannada film actress Parul Yadav was attacked by a pack of six stray dogs in Jogeshwari, a suburb of Mumbai. Usually stray dogs attack small children, who are isolated and easier to attack. 


As per the statement given by the actress' sister, Parul was walking alone near her apartment in the evening when the strays attacked her. Reportedly, the actress has suffered multiple deep bites on her hands, neck, face, legs and head.


"The actress is in shock. She was taken to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai for treatment. Although her wounds are being nursed, the doctors treating her have said she may require surgery and she is likely to get operated on Wednesday." said Sheetal, Parul's sister.


She was given an anti-rabies vaccination at the time of her admission, as her head had a three cm cut from the dog bites. 


In Bengaluru, the BBMP is both praised and condemned for their efforts to bring the stray dog population of the city under control. Their methods range from neutering all the dogs they can catch, to occasionally culling all the dogs in an area.
