Dog Follows Master to Prison

BANGLADESH (AP) - A pet dog swam three rivers, walked 13 kilometers and then

kept a week's vigil outside a jail where his master was imprisoned.

When Sohrab Ali was arrested, Ali's dog swam behind the boat that ferried him across

the first river to prison, said the Independent Sangbad newspaper.

The boatman, trying to drive the dog away, hit him on the head with an oar but he

kept swimming. At the prison, the dog waited at the gate until his owner was released

from a one-week sentence on Aug. 21, the paper reported.

"The dog often used to cry outside the gate, but it would wag its tail in joy

when his master would send it half his prison food," the newspaper said.

The dog, whose name was not given, barked in joy and licked Ali's feet when he was

freed.

Ali was jailed for critically wounding a neighbor in a land dispute in his remote

village of Nakla in Sherpur district, 130 kilometers northwest of Dhaka.
