Two men have been arrested in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia for attempting to organise a beauty contest for dogs during the city’s Eid Al Fitr celebrations, reports Sabq.

Sources told the newspaper the police acted upon an order from municipal authorities after the accused announced the event on social media, adding that the investigators were able to identify and detain the suspects a few hours after the authorities’ directive.
