A pack of stray dogs have been credited with saving the life of a newborn
girl in India after they found her abandoned by her mother under a pile of mud
in a remote village. Residents of Samastipur, in the eastern Bihar state,
found the girl at the weekend after they saw three dogs barking furiously at a
mound of mud under which she was buried.
"The dogs removed the soil around and began to bark and the baby started crying which drew attention of the local villagers," said Ram Narayan Sahani, a senior district official.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
