Saudi Arabia arrests two for holding ‘dog beauty contest’ in Jeddah

Two men have been arrested in Saudi Arabia for trying to organise a beauty contest for dogs.

The pair had been planning a show which would find the most beautiful dog in Jeddah, a port city on the Red Sea coast.

According to local media, three awards had already been dished out in the competition’s early stages.

The main event, advertised heavily on social media, was due to be held tomorrow to coincide with the Eid festival.
