On Saturday morning (May 11), a pack of stray dogs attacked a pregnant deer. Activists said this is the seventh attack in last three months. According to sources, due to developmental activities like parks for public and others in and around Turahalli forest area, stray dogs from Bengaluru outskirts are venturing into forests.

Assistant Conservator of Forest (ACF) Venkatesh said that the public had intimated about the attack. "Our officials visited immediately and tried to save but the deer died of Injuries," said the ACF official and added that such incidents will be prevented in future.
