An animal abuser is accused of purposely torturing dogs by flogging them in public so kind people will come by and offer him money to rescue the crying pooches. In what has become a despicable business plan for the unnamed man in the city of Jilin, located in northeastern China, witnesses claim this is the third dog the man has sold for more than $500.
According to the Express, a witness recorded a video which showed a small dog mercilessly being beaten with a stick after the man tied the pup to a nearby railing. The pitiful screams of the dog attracted a crowd, and a passerby purchased the dog to prevent it from suffering anymore.
Police have since investigated the situation, however there are no laws in China against animal cruelty for dogs and cats unless they are privately owned by citizens. Fortunately, the pup purchased by the Good Samaritan was not hurt.
When is China going to establish animal protection laws?
The video can be seen at this link, however it is extremely graphic and may not be suitable for all viewing audiences.
