Chinese tourist bitten by dog at Malaysia durian buffet

A Chinese tourist has recently recalled her nightmare experience of being bitten by a dog during a durian buffet in Malaysia’s Penang on social media.

The 32-year-old tourist from Liaoning visited Malaysia last month and paid RM40 (US$8.53) to attend a durian buffet at an orchard in Penang, she said in a Xiaohongshu post.

After being driven to the orchard in an off-road vehicle, a dog ran towards her and bit her thigh, The Star reported.

The orchard owner later took her to a nearby clinic where she received medical treatment including a rabies shot and stitches.

Subsequently, the tourist demanded compensation of RM3,000 from the durian orchard owner, including RM1,500 in medical expenses and RM50 per day for accommodation.

She explained that because of the vaccination, she was forced to stay in Malaysia for one more month to complete the course of five rabies vaccines, Oriental Daily News reported.

However, the orchard owner only agreed to cover medical expenses, prompting the tourist to file a report to local police.

”I just wanted to eat durian, but ended up (getting bitten by a dog),” she said in her post. ”My new clothes were torn. I’m suffering pain from my injuries and worrying about getting rabies. I have to change my travel plans and am forced to stay here for a month.”

The incident has drawn attention from Chinese netizens, with many calling on the orchard owner to pay the tourist.

“Since people are allowed to come in and enjoy durian, the owner has the responsibility to ensure the safety of the guests. So, he must pay!” a netizen wrote.

In recent years, Malaysian tourism authorities have launched durian tour packages, giving tourists an opportunity to visit locally-owned orchards where they are able to pick and taste durian and other local fruits.
