For a dog named Bhadra, her name - which means "blessed" in Hindi - is no exaggeration.
On Monday, the internet ached for her after a video of her being cruelly thrown from a rooftop went viral. The incident itself reportedly took place two weeks earlier in Chennai, India.
In the disturbing video, a man grips the small dog by the scruff of her neck and back. He takes one look into the camera, smiles and then tosses her. The sickening act is rendered in slow motion. Her piercing cries after hitting the ground are indescribable.
It was believed that Bhadra had fallen to her death - until Tuesday, when Shravan Krishnan, an animal rights advocate and cofounder of Hotel for Dogs, posted on Facebook incredible news: Bhadra was alive.
