This is the heartwarming moment a woman was caught on CCTV giving a cold stray dog her scarf.
The woman, who was completely unaware her kind gesture was being immortalised on camera, can be seen stopping up and looking at the poor dog as she exits a cafe in Zonguldak, Turkey on a cold, rainy day.
She then starts walking but stops shortly after, before she dumps her umbrella on the pavement and pulls off her scarf.
She warms up the shivering animal, who can be seen curling up and looking at its new blanket for a brief moment before the woman walks away.Dozens feared dead after oil tanker exploded while people scooped up leaked fuel
Since the clip went viral the woman has been identified as Duygu Elma by friends.
She told The Dodo : ‘I couldn’t imagine that my actions would receive this attention. I’m very surprised about it.
INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: INTERESTING FACT ABOUT YOUR PET: Stories abound of owners whose dogs kept sniffing or licking a mole or lump on their body so they got it checked out, discovering it was cancerous. The anecdotal evidence was later backed up by scientific studies. Dogs are so good at this that some of them are trained to detect cancer, in as little as three hours.
‘The weather was so cold. I just couldn’t take it when I saw him shivering.’
Elma has been praised online for offering the dog some comfort at her own expense.
One commented: ‘Humanity is not dead.’
