Bitten by a dog

I was bitten by a dog in Penang. As I mentioned yesterday.

The dog was taken away yesterday morning, as I covered in the same article. Then yesterday evening I saw the same dog happily strolling down our street. Huh? I couldn’t believe it. He was free. My neighbours were stunned and couldn’t understand either.

Catching rabies in Penang

Catching rabies is possible in Penang. Unlikely, but possible. It used to be a rabies free state, but over the last few years, not. One of the local street dogs is over friendly. He’s fully grown, but still a puppy. Yesterday morning he was over-excited, and I was bitten and scratched by him. And this drew blood. Asking around after this I found the dog’s owner took no responsibility for him, and the dog hadn’t had any anti-rabies vaccinations.
