Boy tied to tree for nine years for biting dogs

`Authorities in Indian state of West Bengal rescued a 15-year-old boy tied to a tree for nine years because he used to bite dogs and goats besides gnawing on the feet of relatives and neighbours, officials said today.

Rahul Amin Dhali was just six when he first bit a dog in Biramnagar village, 60km north of Kolkata, the state capital, they said.

A few days later he tasted the flesh of a family member.

“We chose to ignore the issue since he was just a child but it turned worse with every passing day,” Rahman Dhali, the boy’s father, told Reuters.’
