Puppy refuses to leave his dead mother

A puppy stays by the remains of a dog who local residents say is its mother on Nov. 6 (above) days after it was killed in an area burned in violence at East Pikesake ward in Kyaukphyu, Myanmar. The exact circumstances of the dog's death are unknown.

Many readers wondered about the fate of the puppy. We contacted Reuters and they informed us that after
the pictures were taken the puppy was taken to a nearby monastery. The photographer who uses the
byline Minzayar also responded in our comments section:
When I was walking around the burnt areas in that villages I saw this scene which broke my heart. Before
taking pics I asked the local people around who would adopt the puppy. No one couldn't because they are
all in difficulty themselves suffered from the communal violence. Then, I dropped all my cameras just
sitting and watching the little puppy with the deepest sympathy and sorrows cries inside me. Then I took
the pictures. I rubbed its head... He licked my hands.. Then after a few minutes took the pictures again..
When my time comes that I must leave, I was about to take the puppy back to the hotel but then, there
was one very kind local man who has been watching me and the puppy. He said he also wants to adopt it
but cannot because he is poor. Then finally we decided to send the puppy back to the Buddhist monastery
in the village. In Myanmar monasteries are believed to be the most peaceful place than everything. I
believe I did what I could do best in my given situations.
I will surely pay a visit to the puppy again sometime in the future.

Don't forget to share :)
