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.
