Man in India marries dog as atonement

Human–animal marriage is not recognized in law by any country, although attempts by humans to marry animals have been recorded.In November 2007 a man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death – an act he believes cursed him. Selvakumar, 33, told the paper he had been suffering since he stoned two dogs to death and hung their bodies from a tree 15 years prior.
