India: girl forced to marry a ... dog!!!

VILLAGERS in India have "married" off a young girl to a stray dog to ward off an evil spirit which they believed was threatening the family.

The locals at Munda Dhanda village in Jharkhand state, performed the ceremony as they believe it will overcome any curse that might fall on the family. 

Interestingly, the girl is free to get married later in life to a man without even seeking a divorce. 

Superstitions are widespread in India, especially in rural areas where literacy is scarce.
