Stray dogs have been spotted around the river with distinct blue fur.

The likely culprit is the Navi Mumbai. The area is surrounded by a number of factories which dump pollutants including dye into the water. Pollution levels in the river have been measured at 16 times the safe limit.

The dogs don’t appear to be distressed about the effects of the pollution on their skin.
