Afroz Shah, the man behind Mumbai's largest beach clean-up drive at the Versova beach expressed his grief over his dog friend- Diesel who helped him and his team in the clean up - passing away. According to Shah, whenever Diesel would see any plastic on the beach, he would run and pick it up. Diesel passed away on Tuesday night at the Versova beach.
Several people have expressed their grief over Diesel's death. Some Netizens have also called the dog 'a Hero', while others have stated that animals have a much better way of showing care about the environment.
This is why I trust paws more than human being. No words to say. https://t.co/QMYwW80ujG— Prateek Diwakar (@P_TheWalker) October 11, 2019
Heroes comes in all forms. This is a beautiful way to show that our animals care about our environment just as much as we do. Well done, rip Diesel. https://t.co/MkNjwfd6Wn— awesome (@FreakingRadical) October 10, 2019
