Thiruvananthapuram, Apr 8 (PTI): In continuing incidents of stray dog attacks in Kerala, an 85-year-old man was mauled to death by a pack of stray dogs at Thiruvilam village in Thiruvananthapuram district, the police said today.

The deceased, Kunhikrishnan, had left his home at 9 AM yesterday, saying he was going for a hair cut, it said.

When he did not return home till night, family members began a search for him and his body was found bitten by stray dogs late at night.

The elderly man’s face and right hand were found bitten off, police said adding the man seemed to have put up a fight against the animals.
