In Tuen Mun located in the New Territories, (Tuen Mun New Town is a new town developed by Hong Kong Government in Tuen Mun, New Territories, Hong Kong in the 1970s,) a local resident was arrested on Tuesday after he was seen kicking a dog before throwing the animal cruelly to the ground.
According to the Asia Times, police raided the 53-year-old man’s apartment in Po Tin Estates later that afternoon and arrested Lui for abusing a dog in the Po Tin shopping center. A witness videoed the disturbing situation and posted the five-second video on social media showing the man ruthlessly kicking the dog at the entrance to the store. The dog lost its balance before recovering and ran out of the store.
Area residents stated the dog’s new owner told authorities his dog became lost while the two had been shopping, and his dog had been waiting at the supermarket for his owner to return. The suspect had been angry when he spotted the dog at the store and questioned the staff why the dog was there. Taking matters into his own hands, Lui grabbed the dog, threw it on the ground and then kicked it.
Fortunately the dog was reunited with his owner and was not badly injured. Police in Tuen Mun are investigating.
