Indian Woman Forced To Marry Stray Dog After Family Claims She Has An Evil Spirit
At 18-year-old Mangli Munda’s recent wedding, the bride wore red and the groom wore his own fur.
Mangli was told by her elders that she had an evil spirit living within her. She married a stray dog called Sheru as a way to transfer the spirit to him.
The ceremony was religious and legally non-binding, leaving Mangli free to meet an eligible bachelor. Villagers believe that Mangli will have a long and happy life, curse-free.
Sheru, only briefly Mangli’s husband, has now become her pet. She will watch over him, ensuring that the evil spirit doesn’t harm him.
