Biggest pet rescue operation

2018-08-27 07:46:10

The Humane Society International/India had been inundated with distress calls from people ordered to leave their homes without their four-legged friends.

Hundreds of people been killed in the worst flooding to hit the south Indian province in a century and more than a million have been put into emergency camps to avoid the rising waters.

In the hurry to evacuate, many humanitarian boats initially refused to take pets - leaving thousands of dogs and cats behind.

But rescue workers are now risking their lives to reach the abandoned animals as monsoon floods continue to ravage the state. (BBC)
