Chinese restaurant owner steals and kills pet dogs to make his favorite ‘hot pot’ recipe

A restaurant owner in China was chased and identified by a group of irate dog owners this week after the man allegedly stole and killed eight family pet dogs. Identified only as Du, the man and his wife, shot the dogs in a residential neighborhood with a crossbow because they wanted to make a favorite “hot pot” recipe for the restaurant customers.

According to the Chutian Jin Daily and the Daily Mail, the pet owners from the village of WuLongSanZu realized their dogs were missing and chased the suspect after checking a surveillance camera. The villagers notified the Yichang police who dispatched officers to search for the suspect. They later found an abandoned black vehicle on the side of the road – one of the wheels broken away from the chassis of the car. As police searched the car and opened the trunk, they made the grisly discovery of the eight dead dogs that just hours before had been favorite family pets. Tracing the owner of the car, police soon were led to Du.

That same afternoon, Du turned himself into police and told authorities that he ran a restaurant and the dog meat hot pot was the restaurant’s main draw; and so he and his wife drove around the village to kill the dogs and then tossed their bodies into the trunk of his car.

Tragically, it is not known how many dogs suffer the same fate and are hunted for “inhumane purposes” similar to this despicable situation. Although old customs are slowly fading away as younger people change their society to one of animal respect and emotional ties to man’s best friends, this is still the same country that holds the Summer Solstice in Yulin where thousands of dogs are killed and eaten each year despite world protests.

Du is expected to be charged with theft and animal cruelty, but how strict the punishment will be is likely not to discourage others from the inhumanity. People in the country, who truly love their dogs, are encouraged to make sure never to allow their pets to roam free.

    It would be wonderful if there was some “street justice” by the dogs’ owners….. If one of those dogs was my furbaby, those POS’s would be in the morgue…..

    How many other innocent family pets have these POS’s stolen and murdered???

    There are 2 places in Hell waiting for these useless POS’s to burn forever for their cruelty…… hope they get there ASAP!!!!!!!

      Bunny Peters, I applaud you. I feel the same way animal abusers get away with too much. They should suffer the same fate they do to the poor innocent animals. I too would take justice into my own hands but he or she would not be in the morgue they would be put into a wood chipper. Their is no justice for animals in the US. Eye for an Eye justice is the only thing that will work to rid the earth of animal abuse and finally clean up the earth of evil humans.

        This hunk of maggot puke and his wife should both be nailed to a tree and used as target practice – they should be made examples of for their cruelty.

    Despicable! These people have to realize they live in the 21st century now, if they don’t want to realize that, they should be shipped off to an island with others of “their kind” and be forced to grow only rice to live.

    Thoughts of disabling their legs using a crossbow hanging them upside down and skinning them alive would bring me great pleasure. Tit for tat.

    Give me a crossbow and hotpot – not that I would eat the monsters responsible, but they should face the same fate of the innocents they have killed. There are just eight this time, but for how long has this been going on? Days? Weeks? Months? Years????

      maybe something more realistic. and wayyyy less predijist.
      how about China starts keeping their dog’s indoors where they are safe.maybe
      a collar would stop pot soup couple.
      but what really gaulls me is they went into a neighbor hood with a god dam crossbow.
      I guess they didn’t want to disturb the families in the neighborhood as the gathered their on collored family pets who seem really to be living most of the time out side on there own.

        ellen, true leash laws must be implemented. What a good cause if the younger generation of Chinese dog lovers would push for leash laws. I recall (decades ago) seeing many dogs roaming free from their homes before leash laws were enforced. It took many cat owners and people who thought these dogs were a nuisance to do something about it. However, the plight of these dogs in China are in a different situation…..their lives are in danger. Please to the new generation of Chinese dog lovers stand up and do something to protect these dogs.

      this has been going on for about 100 yrs. many dog’s at dog meat festivals clearly have collors and owners. the butcher’s don’t even remove the collors. because there is no shame .

    Put this man and woman in a huge pot of boiling water (but first beat and torture them) then leave them in pot until layers of their skin fall off. Punishment fits the crime.
