Days after the Ghaziabad incident, another pet dog attack was reported from Noida where a man was attacked in a similar fashion in lift of the housing society.

Earlier in the Ghaziabad incident, the pet owner caught on cam was punished with a fine of Rs 5,000.

Stray & pet dogs are now being used as a weapon by callous, irresponsible & unstable people. See the lack of concern from the dog owner. @NatureConserv12 @boogerworm @Vineeta2022S @raj_hamara @aarushi83 @InfAnah @TruConserve @UpendraMPradhan @VasundharaNigam @VillageAmrapali
