In Changzhou, located in eastern China’s Jiangsu Province, a small black dog and his canine pal had been happily playing in an alley near their home on April 20. Without any apparent reason, two men on a motorbike approached the area and the man on the back of the bike shot what appeared to be a gun with a poisonous dart into the black dog’s side. Moments later the men ride away, but not without the smaller dog barking and trying to chase the men down.

The black dog ran home to his owner who tried to catch the men, but sadly had been too late. The dog ran into the courtyard to greet a woman thought to be the wife of the man and most likely the dog’s owner. It was as if the dog knew he was dying and wanted to say goodbye; just moments later as the woman went over to check on her pet, the pup fell over. Repeatedly he tried to stand up to get closer to her. Tragically the dog began to twitch and died.


According to the Humane Society International, dog thieves often poison the dogs and then come back to collect their bodies. An estimated ten million dogs are stolen and killed each year for the country’s despicable dog meat trade; most of the dogs had owners and were beloved pets. One can not even imagine the horror these pets endure with their torturous deaths.

According to the Daily Mail, pet theft continues to be the driving force behind China’s dog meat trade; primarily one of the most heinous public events, such as the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in southern China every June. The two suspects have not been apprehended.

    What good does it do to poison a dog? you can still eat the meat? This is barbaric, one more reason I try not to buy anything from China and support this disgusting country!

      It’s China. Look at the poisoned crap that comes over here from there, and what they’ve sold to their own babies. It’s why I don’t buy food from them (and I’m betting you don’t, either).

      • Barkley's Mom says:

        No my dogs don’t get anything that has made in china on it, even toys. My Daughter in Law bought treats for my pups for Christmas that had AKC on them and I had to throw them out. I wrote to AKC asking how they could endorse anything that was Made in China and they assured me they only endorsed “safe” products. I didn’t care, I threw them out anyway and I told AKC I was ashamed of them for endorsing such things.

        It’s not going to be much different here since they are doing away with most of the regulations.

      Yes. I was going to ask the same thing?! I know that country is disrespectful of human rights. They are much more disrespectful of animals.

    • Olga says:

      I agree isn’t it poisoned also if you poison a mouse and your cat eats it is the cat poisoned? I asked an exterminator that and no response! Where does this evil end? Hopefully soon with the return of Jesus!!!

      • Rev. Dr. Yvonne Ray says:

        We are living in the evil last days. Satan temporarily rules the world but God is still in control. But wickedness will increase until, as you said, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ returns.

      • Barkley's Mom says:

        I know what you mean, I had a mouse problem this winter and wouldn’t use the mouse poison because I was afraid of my dogs eating a poisoned one. We went through quite a few mouse traps.

      • Ruby says:

        Yes, any animal that eats a poisoned mouse will also be poisoned. It’s a big problem. Cats are less likely to be poisoned than dogs because cats are less likely to eat dead animals.

    Another despicable act perpetrated by the Chinese subhuman population. This poor dog did not deserve to be treated like trash, yet a certain element of the Asian culture keep their cruel so called ‘cultural’ myths alive by torturing dogs and cats to become ‘food’. This MUST be stopped – keep protesting, keep petitioning and keep eliminating ALL Asian imports.

    Barbaric people and some of the worst animal abusers.Inhuman like as if they have no feelings no compassion what so ever. I hope they find these sick individuals and give them exactly what they deserve.

  4. Tracy Whitcomb says:

    Those assholes need to be found and shot with the same poisonous dart and left there in the alley. This bullshit has got to STOP!!!!

  5. Shawn W Wintzel says:

    Uhhhhhh’ I would have loved to catch them in the act. In an alleyway with nobody else around. I would have knocked them off the bike if possible and got the dart gun, then both would have gotten one.

    Opened up their gas tank on the tipped scooter to let their gas leak out. Then put them both on it and lit them on fire.

    If only wishes came true.

    My heart is broken reading this
    Honestly this barbaric killing is what I despise the most about the Chinese culture it’s inconceivable

  7. debor33 says:

    I know we aren’t supposed to hate, but I do….these people hurting these innocent precious animals need to be shot with a poison dart themselves.

    Knowing this, the dogs should not have been off the owner’s property… Running around loose is never a good thing. It takes only seconds for something to happen :'(
