We all know that nobody can be as loyal as dogs. But, how heartless are the people who kill these innocent pets? One such heartbreaking news has come up from the Chinese city of Yangzhou in Jiangsu province. A man has been accused of killing six dogs with a dart but was rammed into a brick wall by a man whose dog was killed by the same man.
A video has gone viral after this incident. The video shows the dog killer sitting on a scooter with a dart gun in his gun. He used the dart gun to kill the dogs.
The dog’s owner heard his dog crying in pain and came out, there he saw his pet lying on the floor with a dart in his body. The owner got hold of his car and chased the dog killer who was riding on the scooter. The dog owner got hold of the dog killer and banged him into a pillar and through a brick wall at full speed.
The dog owner was arrested and had been charged with murder charges. His family has stated that he had no intention of killing the man, but he got confused on the pedals. The photographs show the intense scene and the dog killer’s family claims that it was wrong for him to have been murdered.
A relative said:
Even if we were in the wrong, that does not give you the right to be judge, jury, and executioner.
Wendy Higgins, from Humane Society International, last December stated in The Telegram that, “The use of poison to catch dogs for the meat trade is a cruelty that very often sees people’s beloved pets targeted, and the animals involved can suffer enormously.The dog meat trade in China is organized, large-scale and facilitated by crime, with as many as 20 million dogs and four million cats killed every year, so stopping the gangs involved is a major step in the right direction.”
The practice of killing dogs with a dart for selling their meat at the market is pretty usual in China.
