Wild Dogs Turn Green From 'Toxic Waste'


A pack of wild dogs have turned bright green after eating suspected toxic waste in Russia.The strays, thought to be former guard dogs, are said to scavenge for food at a tip on the outskirts of Yekaterinburg city.

A local resident said he thought someone was playing a practical joke when he saw the hounds in the snow.”I go past those dogs every day,” Alexei Bukharovsky said.”They are usually reddish… but then I saw, running along the white snow, an almost completely emerald dog.”

A police spokesman told local news service RIA Novosti that it is thought to be the result of illegal tipping.”Either local residents or a factory have been dumping some kind of chemical waste there,” the spokesman said.

The council has been asked to clean up the site.
