Driver beaten by outraged witnesses for dragging dog behind moving car

In an outrageous act of animal cruelty occurring on Monday in Weihai, China’s Shandong province, witnesses tried desperately to intervene after seeing a tethered dog running after a vehicle, reports AsiaOne. China dog dragged behind car 2

In a viral video, the long haired brown and white dog is first seen running as he tries to keep up with the moving vehicle. The car then picks up speed and the dog struggles to keep up, but then falls and is shown being mercilessly dragged along the road. Witnesses  were so outraged they surrounded the vehicle forcing it to stop. The dog died  at the scene from his fatal injuries.

According to the South China Morning Post, angry animal advocates  attacked the man identified as 43-year-old Qi. Police later arrested Qi and at least four people who had been involved in the fight. The repercussions of the video and pictures posted throughout social media have erupted into widespread condemnation demanding Qi be punished. China dog dragged behind car

A relative of Qi has since come forward stating the dog had rabies and had bitten people that morning. The dog owner had intended to take the dog for treatment, but the dog refused to get into the car so he decided to drive slowly and drag the dog behind. China dog dragged behind car 4

      I commend every single individual who took justice into their own hands!!!- I would be put in jail next to you if I had witnessed such disregard for life!! ..”if” the dog had rabies, HOW did that happen,… did you NOT get your dog shots?!?-
      So YOU didn’t take care of him, he got sick, and took it out on someone, and YOU thought it was okay to drag him to his death?!- (hopefully his little neck snapped instantly, and he only knew an immense amount of FEAR before he was murdered…you POS)

    The family’s story sounds as plausible as the POS is human. The authorities should let the people they arrested off for doing a GOOD DEED and PUBLIC SERVICE. It’s just too bad they didn’t end the filthy waste of space. I’m glad they stopped him: how often does that happen here? Maybe advocates over there have to be more daring because of so much egregious and rampant cruelty! I hope they punish the vile POS, though the punishment will most certainly not fit the crime.

    Rabies? No way! He’s just a sadistic sub-human low life. Needs the same done to him. An eye for an eye.

    They should have killed him. This evil, P.O.S. should not be living at all. Imagine having a person like that in your neighborhood? He could kill a child without any issue. Rotten evil P.O.S. Sociopath. This country needs to be bombed and eradicated from this earth the way they boil and skin dogs and cats alive and smile and laugh with a cigarette hanging from their evil mouths. Death to them all.

    Bomb China into the atmosphere. They offer nothing to our existence. They send poison laden toys and food to the West. Celebrate torturing and eating DOGS on a special day. And promote No redeeming characteristics. Bye bye.

    If the dog had rabies the owner should have just called the animal control to come pick up the dog “Humanely” and have it in quarantine for a week, then proceed accordingly by the law. This man deserves to be beaten to unconsciousness. To do this is inhumane and cruel. I pray to God this man doesn’t have any actual human children. If he does I pray for his children.
