#6. A dog sleeping on the grave of its owner every night for 7 years

When it was first posted, this photo had almost 60,000 likes and more than 55,000 shares. Users were moved by the loyalty of the dog. The caption said that the dog named captain had been visiting its owner’s grave for the last 7 years and sleeping there till morning. This photo is absolutely real, so is the dog.

The photo is absolutely real. It was taken in the Czech Republic and uploaded unedited. However, you’d be surprised to know that the bear is fake. 2 Greenpeace activists wore costumes.

Hundreds of thousands of users rushed to like and like this photo of a goose that allegedly froze to a pipe and was warming a puppy with its wing. The pair was allegedly spotted in Montana.

While the photo looks real, the facts surrounding it are not very convincing. These pictures have been on Chinese websites since 2017 while the earliest post was made in March 2017. In the Chinese platform, the text under the photos says that the puppy was sitting on the side of the road, freezing. Ducks were passing by and the puppy ran toward one of them, like a mother it covered it with its wing.

The website also allows everyone to give their own description which means it’s almost impossible to find out if the story is real or made up.

The photo above went viral, showing what looks like a megalodon’s tooth and a whale’s bone. In reality, the photos were found in different places at different times. One individual decided to combine them into one sculpture. Try to imagine how much a real meg’s tooth would cost, probably millions of dollars and it would be locked away in an archaeological museum.

This photo caused a massive uproar on Facebook when it was uploaded not long ago. It had a caption that said ‘this cruise ship is dumping waste right into the sea.’. Users were quick to leave bad comments that forced the national director on the environment in Uruguay to respond.
Through his twitter account, he explained that the cruise ship was starting its turbines in order to drop the anchor, the brown spots were sand and sludge stirred from the bottom.
