QuoteGirl marries dog A NINE-YEAR-old girl has married a stray dog in front of more than 100 people in India. The tribal custom is intended to protect the child from evil, reports the Press Trust of India. Karnamoni Hasda married the street dog in West Bengal state's Hooghly district. The Santhal tribe believes a child is in grave danger if their first tooth appears on the upper gum. A canine marriage is said to be the only way of warding off evil. The child can remarry a human after growing up. The report says 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.
