    Interesting and heartwarming clip – the nuclear incident happened in 1986, so these dogs are several generations on, wonder what they dieted on, looking like they survived life without humans well, and still remain good-natured, rather than vicious pack animals, you might expect.

    Well for bible believers humans started caring for animals when Noah loaded up his ark, meanwhile in India.’

    “For India’s flood-hit rhinos, refuge depends increasingly on humans”

    In recent decades, the floodwaters have reached record levels, resulting in the deaths of hundreds of animals. The highest recorded flood in Kaziranga was in 1998, and the park has started regularly seeing major inundations.

      Dogs are man’s best friend, remember. and it has taken many thousands of years of selective breeding to get them that way—-thank goodness that they are not likely to revert to “vicious pack behavior” in such a short time, at least those who are minimally exposed to humans trying to treat them well.

      Maybe there’s something wrong with me, but I react as strongly to images of suffering dogs as I do images of humans. Perhaps it’s because humans have been abusing each other for millennia as a matter of course while dogs, in their simple way, want nothing more than to be our friends and don’t deserve such treatment. Same goes for all the other critters on the planet who are being killed off because of man’s greed and ignorance—-what justice is there in some tree frog or beetle that has taken millions of years to evolve being driven to extinction because of us?
