According to The Moscow Times: Blue Russian Dogs Spotted Near Abandoned Factory.
A pack of stray dogs with bright-blue fur has caught the Russian internet’s attention.
Photos of the dogs roaming through the snow in the city of the city of Dzerzhinsk 370 kilometers east of Moscow sparked mixed reactions on social media. Some compared the dogs to cartoon and movie characters and others expressed outrage that the stray animals’ health could be at risk.
The dogs may have been exposed to chemicals at a nearby abandoned factory that produced plexiglass and hydrocyanic acid, giving their fur the eye-catching blue color, observers said.
