Zanjeer The Golden Labrador Who Saved Thousands of Lives.

Post by jones jones »

In March 1993, a series of 12 bombs went off across Mumbai, India. The serial blasts left 257 dead and 713 injured. But in the aftermath, an unlikely hero emerged.

According to Reuters, a golden Labrador named Zanjeer worked with the bomb squad and saved thousands of lives by detecting "more than 3,329 kgs of the explosive RDX, 600 detonators, 249 hand grenades and 6406 rounds of live ammunition."

He helped avert three more bombs in the days following the blasts. The dog died of bone cancer in 2000. He was eight years old. In the photo, a senior police officer lays a wreath of flowers on Zanjeer as he was buried with full police honors at a widely attended ceremony.
