The Balanagoda Police had to shoot a dog that had bitten six persons at the Balangoda town yesterday morning.  

Police who rushed to the town on information that a dog was going on a rampage killed the animal by shooting while it was biting a man who was already lying down on the ground due to its attack.   


The six persons bitten by the dog were then sent to the Balangoda Base Hospital and a severely injured person was later transferred to the Rathnapura General Hospital.  


A doctor of the Balangoda hospital said that four of the patients were discharged while one patient was still undergoing treatment.  
Balangaoda Police said that the arrangements have been made to send the head of the dog for rabies test.
