NEW DELHI (AFP) - A nine-year-old girl was married off to a dog in the presence of more than 100 people in eastern India under a tribal custom to protect the child from evil, a report said.

Karnamoni Hasda wedded the street dog last week in West Bengal state's Hooghly district in a common practice among the Santhal tribe, the Press Trust of India (news - web sites) news agency said, quoting local officials.

According to Santhal belief, if a child's first tooth appears on the upper gum he or she is in grave danger that can only be warded off by a marriage with man's best friend. The child can remarry a human after growing up.

The report said Karnamoni's canine marriage did not take place immediately after her first tooth appeared because her father's financial problems did not allow for a wedding at the time.

I refuse to consider these people to be in even the same broad racial category as me. I subscribe to the idea that they are Australoid, with something similar to us in the background.

This story disgusts me.

Does that mean whites who commit bestiality are instantly 'not white'? :rolleyes:

Could be that they never notice the difference between the dog and a human over there any way. :eek: :rolleyes:

These are the closest relatives to australoids who can't even tell the animate from the inanimate! No wonder they have animal marriages! Couldn't they just give the girl a dog for her birthday? No, she has to marry it. I wonder if they consider dogs to be their equals?? LOL
