e've seen it all: poodles with pink hair, shih tzus with barrettes, and even dogs with mohawks. Pet owners have been making safe and cute cosmetic changes to their pooches for years. And that's fine, as long as they're actually safe.
However, a recent, bizarre incident in Taloja, India has people furious.
Residents of Taloja, India recently witnessed a phenomenon that was nothing short of shocking.
Dogs, especially strays, were running around the city streets, seemingly dyed blue.
As the tweet says, the culprit was a dye factory illegally dumping materials into the nearby Kasadi river.
The result is anything but cute. In a horrifying turn of events, the dyes are likely poisonous.
And it's not just one or two dogs.
It’s likely that hundreds of pups have been affected by this ecologically reckless act of chemical dumping.
On the bright side, local animal control workers who have found these blue dogs have been able to wash the dye off with a few consecutive washes. Once washed, the danger of the dye is lessened.
Unfortunately, the SPCA has not been able to find and clean every dog affected, and the dye can take its toll over time, eventually causing some major health problems.
Plus, there is a major environmental hazard to simply dumping toxic waste into the street, instead of disposing of it properly.
This poor dog has gone blind from exposure to the harmful dye.
This is no joke, and angry citizens want someone to answer for this unlawful and cruel act.
