More from the reality-challenged community

You may have seen this already, but if not you can thank me later.

In India there are people who are reasonably concerned with tiger attacks. You would be, too, if you lived in an area where tigers roam freely in close proximity to your house.

Boy marries dog to ward off tiger attacks

BHUBANESWAR, India (Reuters) - An infant boy was married off to his neighbors' dog in eastern India by villagers, who said it will stop the groom from being killed by wild animals, officials and witnesses said on Wednesday.

Apparently the lad is thought to be in particular danger because of an extra tooth growing out of his upper gum, so I guess the question really is: are they doing this because they believe in some bizarre and delusional religion, or just because of a lack of modern dental techniques?

This article is important because not many people know that domesticated dogs are natural enemies of tigers.
