Patna : A horse that had bitten over two dozen people in a Bihar town was beaten to death, police said Saturday.
The horse strayed into a residential-cum-market area in Purnea, about 300 km from here, Thursday night and bit 27 people, creating panic in the area.
Those seriously injured had to be taken to hospital.
"Several people were injured in the attack. Some broke their hands and legs," said Mansoor Alam, a Purnea resident.
After failing to rein in the horse, people chased it Friday morning and beat it with bamboo sticks and iron rods.
"The horse jumped into a drain where it later succumbed to its injuries," the police said.
