Chinese officials beaten two dogs adopted and mercilessly killed
Chinese officials beaten two dogs adopted and mercilessly killed in China. Uniformed men reportedly stormed the home of a 70-year-old man surnamed Chen and dragged his two pet dogs out. The men were armed with wooden clubs and viciously beat both dogs to death.
Chen was then instructed to carry his dead pets to a nearby post, so the men could snap a photo showing they were strays. Photos and videos of the gruesome scene went viral on Chinese social media.
What’s more likely is that the men were part of a dedicated dog-catching team for Dongtai, and reportedly got 100 yuan for every dog killed. The culling mission was carried out in an effort for the municipality to be named a clean and civilized city.
