The abandoned dogs of Bundal Island, Karachi

In Karachi, there is an island off the coast known as ‘kutta (dog) island’ - also called Bundal Island or Bundaar. People take stray and pet dogs there and abandon them. They have no food, are surrounded by water they cannot drink and have no shade, as the island is bare of any form of vegetation. The animals kill each other for food, die of heat, of thirst, or trying to swim back to the shore, which is too far. This is their story!
