A picture of a little puppy sitting by a corpse is becoming an web sensation. Photos taken by a Reuters photographer appeared on the NBC News websites showing a sad pup by the remains of a dog who local residents say is its mother.
They told the photographer that the mother 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, but the pictures tell a story all by themselves.
Update: Many readers wondered about the fate of the puppy. NBC contacted Reuters and they informed us that after the pictures were taken the puppy was taken to a nearby monastery.
