Can my conclusion (based upon the observation) be correct?Today evening. In a very busy traffic signal on the Ring Road of New Delhi, two street dogs were waiting along with some people. One of these two dogs was perfectly normal. But the other dog had only three legs. One of its front legs was not there. Most probably it had lost the leg in any previous accident. Suddenly the normal dog started running and reached the other side of the road with tremendous risk. Some pedestrians also followed the dog and crossed the busy road running.
However, I was astonished by the behaviour of the other street dog (which had three legs). It waited patiently, and unbelievably watched the traffic signal. When the traffic signal turned red, it crossed the road confidently without any haste, in front of cars and buses.
I am still astonished! Is it possible that the dog has learnt the significance of traffic lights by watching these for many years? Can my conclusion based upon the observation be correct? Or is it imagination of my fertile brain?
