Wild wolves devoured a young boy in village Atani of ayun, some 20 km south of Chitral town.
The boy, barely 12-year-old, while playing in the fields near his home with four other fellows, was nibbled into pieces by a pack of seven hungry wolves who had descended from the overlooking hills, due to intense cold. The traumatised children, while narrating the incident, said that when they saw the wolves, they ran towards a nearby house but the ill-fated boy lagged behind and met his fate.
When the children cried “wolf”, some of the villagers rushed to the spot with guns and sticks but by then the wild animals had fled leaving only shreds of the boy.
