Four Dead in India in Fight over Dog Poop

Here's a youtube video report about the story from India where four people died in a fight that began over dog poop.  It happened in the Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh, India.  I find this video eerie, because the narrator's tone doesn't really match the seriousness of the story.  He seems almost happy to be reading it.  Imagine a fight over dog poop escalating to the point where four people were killed.  Pick up after your dog!

Here's the description from youtube:

A fight over dog excrement has left four dead in the Baghpat district of Uttar Pradesh, India.

Further, four people were seriously injured and four policemen suspended as a result of the skirmish.

The battle began when a family's pet defecated in front of a neighbor's door.

It appears that the location had become one of the canine's preferred spots.

The homeowner and the dog's keeper became embroiled in an argument, which quickly escalated into a physical battle involving additional family members, sticks, and knives.

Before long, the two sides engaged in an exchange of gunfire.

All were rushed to a nearby hospital, but reportedly there was no staff available to tend to them.

By the time they were seen, two were declared dead on arrival and two more people died soon after due to excessive blood loss.

The others who sought medical attention were sent to a different hospital and treated for their injuries.

Four policemen have been suspended pending an investigation into why they failed to respond to the altercation and resulting violence when alerted multiple times.

One doctor is also under review for the delay in medical assistance.
