The victim's father Ben Ssemwezi says that the treatment for his son is too expensive asking the district authorities to come to their rescue.

He says that residents who can't control the movement of their dogs should leave the village.

Agnes Namubiru another resident says that since some of the dogs are not immunized, residents risk contracting rabies.

Sowedi Sserwadda, the Kibinge sub-county chairperson says that they have received several complaints from different people who have lost their animals to stray dogs.

He, however, says that he has asked the district veterinary authorities to intervene and vaccinate the dogs in the area.
