Cop Shares Umbrella With Stray Dogs During Heavy Rainstorm


meant the world to them

Over the past few days, heavy rains have flooded the streets of Kolkata, India, leaving humans and animals checking out a secure place within the storm. So it seemed only natural to Constable Tarun Kumar Mandal that he should help those in need.

Last Saturday, Mandal was monitoring traffic at a busy seven-way crossing when he received some unexpected company. Two wet stray dogs spotted him standing within the middle of the road and flocked to him.

The compassionate cop offered the 2 dogs shelter under his large umbrella and continued directing traffic.

A passerby snapped a photograph of the tiny act of kindness and shared it on social media, touching people from round the world. and therefore the look on the dogs’ faces says it all:

With an estimated 35 to 40 million stray dogs in India — one among the very best populations within the world — there is a great distance to travel to assist these animals. But the Kolkata police attempt to step in wherever they will when there is a dog in need of rescue or simply an area to rest.

And for the 2 grateful street dogs, the instant of respite meant the planet .
