Four dogs guarded their injured friend in the middle of a busy road and refused to leave his side. The video, which went viral in China, shows the dogs surrounding their friend after he had been struck by a hit-and-run driver. The sad incident occurred on January 19 near Anning district of Lanzhou, Gansu Province.
According to People’s Daily Online, the heartbreaking video showed the white dog lying on the road while his friends seemed to be both guarding him and waiting for him to get up and leave with them. It is believed the dogs were all strays. The video was captured by onlookers and later posted to Weibo, the popular China media site.
In the translation from the Daily Mail, social media users were outraged that no one stopped to help the dog. Witnesses say the white dog died shortly after being hit.
“An animal is a life as well, it does not mean you can just leave it in the middle of a road,’ said ‘fupolije’.”
‘This shows us exactly how cruel human beings can be,’ commented ‘lengfengsr’.”
Humans sure have a long way to go in the empathy department as compared to our canine friends. Rest in peace poor dog.
