      Alert as starving dogs kill two

January 25, 2001

STRAY dogs starving in Arctic conditions in Russia's Far Eastern region have begun attacking people and have killed an eight-year-old boy and a 63-year-old homeless woman in the past six days, officials in Vladivostok said yesterday.

Local authorities in outlying towns and villages have formed armed groups to shoot stray dogs. The region is in the grip of an exceptionally cold spell that has driven temperatures to below minus 40F
