Dogs are turning blue

Stray dogs are turning blue – toxic substance to blame

Stray dogs in Mumbai, India, are turning a rather shocking color – according to One India, many of the dogs in the area have fur which has turned blue. Toxic, industrial dye, which was dumped into the Kasadi river, not only discolored the dogs’ fur, but one of them was left blinded.

According to activists, the toxic substance is coming from a factory which dumps the dye directly into the water – though the area is cordoned off, dogs manage to get into the water while trying to cool down or drink. Dogs impacted by the toxic dye are being treated by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals – they will be released in the same area after treatment.

The company believed to be responsible for releasing the dye into the water is under investigation – they have been ordered to stop dumping toxins into the water and threatened with a shut down if they do not comply.

    Sad! If you guys see these dogs on the streets, why don’t you do the right thing and adopt them? Taking a video is a start, but you need to take more action! Have a compassion and adopt them! If each person adopts one and then spay so they can’t have more kids to end up on the streets, this world would be a better place!

    Shame on the factory. So sad that once the dogs are treated they’re brought back to the same area they were picked up from.

    Pathetic factory! Shut them down for good! How dare them cause such harm in the name of profit. Also, why are the people treating the animals planning on returning them to the exact same area afterwards? This is where all the toxins are and they are bound to go cool off or drink the same damn water. Come on, goofballs. Lives are at stake here!

    These pathetic people that allow a company to dump toxic dye into a river need to be hung. Why don’t you shut the damn company down and then do your investigating? Why don’t you also have better humane laws that protect your dogs? Like spay and neuter, shots, shelters etc.. Wouldn’t it be lovely if you learned to control your over population problem and adopted these poor helpless animals into loving homes? For Gods sake, you need to evolve a bit from the ancient times. Better treatment for all of man kind, it would be nice!!
