In a bizarre incident, a dog was abandoned by its owner in Kerala's Thiruvananthapuram for having an "illicit relationship" with a dog next door.
The owner also attached a note in its collar before abandoning it outside the World Market in Chackai, Thiruvananthapuram.
The white Pomeranian dog, about three years old, was later rescued by People For Animals (PFA) volunteer, Shameen. But the note attached to its collar shocked Shameem.
The note written in Malayalam reads: "The dog is a really nice breed. It is well-behaved. It does not have any diseases. The only issue is that it barks a little. It hasn't bitten anyone in three years.
"It is being abandoned because of 'illicit relationship' with a dog in the neighborhood."
Shameem said that although the dogs are usually abandoned due to injury or sickness, this is the first time she had come across a dog abandoned for having an 'illicit relationship'.
