Photo of the Day

In this photo taken on Monday, April 9, 2012, the leashes of dogs put down that day hang from a metal fence at a government-run shelter in Taoyuan, northern Taiwan. In an ongoing project, Taiwanese photographer Tou Tou Chih-kang makes portraits of shelter dogs in the final moments of their lives before they are put down by lethal injection. Tou has been visiting dog shelters for two years now, making human-like portraits that give a sense of dignity and esteem to some 400 canines, in hopes of educating the public on the proper care of pets. This year Taiwanese authorities will kill an estimated 80,000 stray dogs at 38 pounds scattered throughout the island. (AP Photo/Wally Santana)
