Leopard pounces upon dog outside house in Gujarat....

In a spine-chilling incident that was caught on camera, a dog was attacked by a leopard outside a house in Gujarat's Amreli. CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral and the internet is super scared.
The dog was sleeping at the doorstep of the house while the leopard crept in. It walked along the portico silently and pounced on the dog as it shrieked in fright and freed itself. But the leopard wasn't willing to give up as it chased the dog while it attempted to escape.
Soon after being shared on social media, the video has been viewed over 80,000 times and the comments section of the post is filled with fearful expressions. "I hope the dog is fine! Couldn't they just let the dog inside," a user said.
Several others enquired about the dog asking whether it is alive. That isn't clear as yet considering the camera was only able to capture the leopard chasing the dog till a certain point. "Oh my God..such a horrible thing...caught on camera," another user exclaimed.

Starvation and beating caused death of 90 stray do...

The carcasses of at least 90 canines, with their muzzles and legs tied with strings, were found strewn across various spots on Girda-Savaldabara Road in a forest area on Thursday evening. 

MUMBAI: Starvation and beating with sticks seem to be the prima facie causes behind the death of as many as 90 stray dogs in Maharashtra's Buldhana district as per a preliminary postmortem report, a police official said on Monday.
The carcasses of at least 90 canines, with their muzzles and legs tied with strings, were found strewn across various spots on Girda-Savaldabara Road in a forest area on Thursday evening. 
The incident came to light due to a foul odour emanating from decomposing carcasses.
A case under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, and the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was registered on Sunday against unidentified killers of the strays on a complaint lodged by a forest guard.
"Postmortem of few carcasses revealed that the dogs had not eaten food for a few days. Prime facie, we suspect the strays died due to starvation as their muzzles were found tied with strings and due to them beaten up with sticks," the official said.
He said those carcasses which were not decomposed and different parts of the carcasses were used for postmortem.
The viscera samples have been sent for examination, he said, adding that the final postmortem report will be received within a week.
More than 100 dogs were found thrown on the road at five locations.
Of them 90 dogs were found dead while some were found to be alive, the official had said.
Police suspect the strays were picked up from the city limits, killed, and their carcasses dumped in the forest area.
Police are questioning dog-catchers from nearby areas for clues.

Lost Bloxwich dog reunited with owners after two y...

An "overjoyed" family were reunited with their lost dog more than two years after he was suspected of being stolen.
Nicola Spragg, 34, from Bloxwich, Walsall, said her Shar-Pei disappeared without a trace from her back garden in April 2017. 
Last week Mata, aged four, was found wandering the streets 25 miles away in Telford, Shropshire. He was traced back to her through his microchip. Ms Spragg said son Frazer, 11, "sobbed" when he realised the pet had returned. Mata, named after Frazer's favourite Manchester United player Juan Mata, had been with the family since he was a puppy. Last Thursday Ms Spragg received a phone call "out of the blue" from staff at a dogs' home in Telford asking if she wanted her dog back. 
"My son came home and I told him to shut his eyes," the mother of three said. "He opened them and looked at me and started stroking the dog and said 'it's not Mata'. 
"I said 'bab, it's Mata'. He sobbed. It's a lot to take in. "He's not just a dog he's our family." She said Mata was in immaculate condition when he was found. "I do thank whoever had him. I know they are going to be heartbroken, but he's with the rightful owner," she added. Marty Burrell, the co-owner of Hilbrae Rescue Kennels, which helped rescue the dog, said the "lovely outcome" was down to the microchip.
"All we want to do is reunite dogs and their owners as quickly as possible," she said.
