Man in Nepal marries dog for luck and dies

An elderly man from Nepal, 75 years of age, married a dog in a local custom to ensure good luck only to die three days later.

Nepal
With his son, friends and other relatives by his side, Phulram Chaudhary wedded a dog Saturday in Durgauli village in the southwestern Kailali district.

The man was following a custom of his Tharu community. The custom holds that an old man who regrows teeth must take a dog to be his 'lawfully wedded wife'.

"He believed that this would help him avoid great misfortune later in life. However, he died a few days afterward," the state-run daily Gorkhapatra said.
