Stray dog dyed pink in Russia sparked public outrage
Stray dog dyed pink in Russia sparked public outrage. The incident took place in the city of Izhevsk in Russia’s Udmurt Republic. Someone must have thought it would be funny to make the canine look fabulous.
The poor dog was picked up by wildlife volunteer Vera Ivanova, after reports about it appeared on Russian social media. Vera took the dog, who’d been nicknamed the “Pink Elephant,” to a local shelter. Vera says the dog seems fine, though it has been vomiting. She suspects the dog is vomiting because it was recently dyed. At the shelter, volunteers have been washing the dog to get the dye out of its white fur.
Local police are now looking for the person who dyed the dog pink. The person may be charged with animal cruelty.
