Just two days after the safe landing of NASA’s Perseverance on Mars, the rover is sending its first mysterious pictures: Some weird blue dogs!
This week pictures of stray dogs with very unnatural-looking blue fur blew up on VK.

The dogs were spotted near an abandoned chemical plant in the city of Dzerzhinsk, which is about 230 miles east of Moscow.
People were very concerned about the potential exposure to dangerous chemicals the dogs may have suffered.
The former bankruptcy manager of the plant said the facility used to produce plexiglass and hydrocyanic acid.
Although the plant closed six years ago, some buildings still house chemicals like copper sulfate, which the dogs may have been rolling around, thus blueing themselves.
Russian animal rights activists got involved and managed to get seven of the dogs to a veterinarian, who found that the dogs had no health complications, blue fur aside.
