An Alsatian dog which was becoming a serious danger to human life has been killed by the Western Regional office of the Veterinary Service of Ghana.
On June 20, 2017 a six-year-old student named Bismark Adzie student of class one has been bitten by that dog at New Amanful in the Ahanta West District which results in his death
The dog was isolated by the Veterinary Service for two weeks where they were checking whether it was suffering from rabies or not. It was then handed over to its owner after its complete checkup and after confirmation that it was free from the said disease.
Though after complete investigation, the reports revealed that it poses a serious threat to human life. Therefore, the Veterinary Service asked its owner through the police to return that dog to them so that it should be put rest.
On Friday morning, July 14, 2017, the dog has been killed through a process known as Euthanasia at the Headquarters of the Regional Veterinary Service. Euthanasia is the process of injecting a chemical called T61 into affected animals body by the veterinary service personnel.
The Acting Director of the Service Dr Simon Gbene, told that it was for the first time that Euthanasia process is used to kill an animal in Ghana though it is very common in the Western countries.
He also warns the dog owners, school authorities and the general public to be very careful of the dogs wherever and whenever they come close to them since some could be very unpredictable.
