This 2014 film resurfaced this month after India Today wrote about the country's recent killings of street dogs and included footage from "Man of God."
Even several days after the recent cull, it's still unclear whether the government or the townspeople are responsible for injecting the stray dogs with deadly potassium cyanide.
Luckily for Baliarsingh, he lives with his dogs on the opposite end of India, far away from Kannur. Though nothing can reverse the tragic deaths of those dogs in Kannur, Baliarsingh's generosity has inspired compassion in others. Using a PayPal account, Sampad was able to raise funds for Baliarsingh and his pets.
