'Tar Baby': Dog saved from tar pool in Udaipur, India

A stray dog in India's Udaipur is recovering after being found stuck in pool of hot tar.

The tar, which had leaked from a container, solidified around the animal after it fell in.

Animal Aid Unlimited, a non-governmental organisation which rescues animals in distress, spent several hours cleaning him with vegetable oil, and says the dog is expected to make a full recovery.
