Chile Dalmatian Man
In this Oct. 7, 2013 photo, Nestor Vergara, 55, pets one of his 42 Dalmatians in the backyard of his modest home, in Padre Hurtado, a town on the outskirts of Santiago, Chile. His neighbors constantly complain about the foul smell coming from his yard, and municipal officials have threatened to evict him by the end of the month. Vergara says he only wants to set an example and raise consciousness so other Chileans can help in saving the growing number of stray dogs. (AP Photo/Luis Hidalgo)
