Industrial Waste turns Dogs blue

In Mumbai haben sie eine Fabrik geschlossen, nachdem blaue Hunde in der Gegend gesichtet wurden. Den Hunden gehts ansonsten gut und das blaue Zeug lässt sich abwaschen.

[Arati Chauhan, head of the Navi Mumbai Animal Protection Cell] had posted images of the blue dogs on the group’s Facebook page, saying the “pollutants from Taloja Industrial area not only ruining the water bodies affecting humans there but also affecting animals, birds, reptiles”.

The board investigated, shutting down the company on Wednesday after confirming that canines were turning blue due to air and water pollution linked to the plant. An animal welfare agency managed to capture one of the dogs and wash some of the blue dye off. The group concluded that animal seemed unharmed in all other ways.
