As summer approaches its peak, temperatures in many places around the country are hovering near the 50° Celcius mark. The hot weather is taking a toll some animals.
Recently, a video made rounds on Twitter that showed a Saudi man pouring water in the mouth of a dog that was almost dying of thirst.
The man apparently stopped his car midway on a highway when he noticed the dog in its miserable condition.

The video caught the attention of Prince Khaled Al Saud who not only retweeted the video but commented on it saying that there is no reason to be surprised by the man’s gesture as this is what his religion teaches him.
لا تتعجبون من فعله ؛ فهذا الرجل الشهم إنما يُطبق تعاليم دينه الحنيف " ..
