Many stray dogs have been spotted with a blue body makeover after swimming in polluted water in Navi Mumbai, India.

Authorities speculate industrial dye may be pumped into the water, the Metro reported.

 

Video footage on social media showed a group of stray dogs all coloured in blue.

Arati Chauhan, an animal protection officer expressed his shock and requested the pollution control board to take action against these  industries, according to the Metro.

A complaint has reportedly been lodged with the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) stating the animals are suffering due to the waste.

"Allowing the discharge of dye into any water body is illegal. We will take action against the polluters as they are destroying the environment. We have directed our sub-regional officer to investigate," an MPCB spokesman is quoted as saying by the Metro.
