As per the details, the officers of the island nation received information about the ferocious animal in Island Harbour. Upon receiving the news, the authorities immediately responded to the matter by visiting the stated area. 

On reaching there, they discovered three people suffering from serious injuries that had been caused by the ferocious animal. The animal has not been identified yet, but the authorities have promised to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter in order to protect and prevent the other citizens of the nation from the harmful and disastrous effects of the animal.

One person commented, “If the “ferocious animal” is deemed to be a dog, please at least specify the breed and whether it is a purebred. The last thing the island needs is people poisoning innocent yard (mixed breed/island) dogs.”

“Is this for real? I mean, how is it possible? I hope people are safe,” wrote another user.
