PATNA: Fighting cats killed a baby in the eastern Indian state of Bihar, leaving a couple in the grip of shock ahead of the famous Hindu festival of Holi, the festival of colours. The victim was lone child of the mourning couple.
The horrible incident took place at Dilawarpur village under Bihta police station in Patna district on Tuesday.
Reports said one-and-a-half-year-old baby was sleeping on the bed in his home when the mother heard cries of the baby. She hurriedly raised an alarm and rushed towards the room.
Killed during mating?
“When I rushed to the room, I found my baby living in a pool of blood and the cats sitting alongside attacking him,” victim’s mother told the media today.
The baby was hurriedly rushed to a local hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead.
“Normally the cats don’t attack babies but they fight during mating. May be they attacked the baby during that time,” said Dr Ajit Kumar.
