New attacks are reported in the chronic problem of stray dogs in Skopje. A 67 year old man was bit in the left leg by a stray dog on Sunday morning, as he was walking through the main city park.
A 55 year old woman was also attacked, while walking down 11th of October street in the downtown area.
City authorities have failed miserably in tackling the problem, to the point that main tourist landmarks are surrounded by packs of dogs who often follow visiting tourist groups around. A month ago a 17 year old girl from Gostivar reportedly drowned in the Vardar river while fleeing from a pack of wild dogs.
