Golden retriever killed in public by officer in China

A golden retriever died an agonizing death after a policeman wielding a long wooden club beat the dog to death in public – in front of stunned pedestrians and young children. The incident took place in the Tianxin district of Changsha, Hunan Province on New Year’s Eve afternoon. A report from a local animal activist stated the dog had just been adopted from a nearby pet hospital, and it is likely he had been abandoned, was frightened and left tethered on the sidewalk. The dog had no microchip, nor could anyone find his owner.

According to the Daily Mail, the disturbing footage began with a dog who had been tied to a road barrier off the sidewalk. Local police claim the police officer had been carrying out his duty to protect the public, and the dog had allegedly bitten a 66-year-old man and a 23-year-old man. The older man who claimed to have been bitten by the dog said his knees hurt as the dog pounced upon him – the dog had been chained up.

The golden retriever could be seen in the video trying to avoid the direct blows to his head and crying out in agony as the beating continued. The officer did not use any tranquilizing gun and made the decision to beat the dog to death. In a statement from the Chansha Police, the officer had just been carrying out his duties:

“Dog owners should control or kill any violent, rabid-like dogs. They should also report the incidents to the police department and animal infection control department immediately,” states the rules and regulations the police cited after the disturbing incident.

Keith Guo, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned the officer’s public killing as even young children were subjected to the violence.

“This is not just an act of violence towards animals; it also reflects the tragedy of animals being traded then abandoned as commercial products,” stated Guo.

The incident has gone viral; citizens have been coming forward laying flowers in remembrance of a dog that was brutally killed. In a direct contradiction to the older man’s story of the dog attacking him, the following tells a much different story:

 “Chinese animal lovers wept and placed flowers at the Changsha site where a brutal police officer bludgeoned a FRIENDLY, TIED UP Golden Retriever to death. POLICE REFUSED TO LET ANIMAL LOVERS SAVE THE DOG, forcing them to stand back and weep helplessly. Chinese TV ran an article on the incident, showing the TIED UP DOG stepping forward to say HI to the old man as he walked past. THE DOG WAS WAGGING ITS TAIL. The old man told police the dog made him feel scared and said the dog attacked him – there was NO SIGN of any dog attack on the old man at all – from the video I watched where he showed his leg. FABRICATION! The disgraceful police officer repeatedly bludgeoned the wailing dog on the walkway of a busy road – in full view of horrified onlookers! Children were present and witnessed to horrific cruelty.”

The two officers involved in the brutal beating have been receiving death threats since the video went viral. They claim to be receiving threatening text messages and even a funeral wreath was sent to one of the officer’s home.

It’s too late for this dog, but it is hoped changes can be made. The following information has been supplied for anyone wanting to voice their complaints. Everyone is asked to remain civil:

    Just another example of the lack of humanity dealt to animals by the Chinese countries. This so called ‘cop’ needs that club shoved so far up his useless ass until he chokes on it. Don’t care if this never gets printed it is how I feel.

    This was my email to the governor: I found the translation and sent it in both chinese and english.
    This story of a friendly golden retriever is heartbreaking. I have come to realize that there are good Chinese citizens who are being tormented by police like the ones who beat this screaming dog to death. They wanted to help this dog. The video showed the man was lying when he said the dog bit him.
    I am so glad to live in America where we have compassionate people in law enforcement. I feel so bad for that poor dog. The animals in China are treated horrendously and I have heard from different parts of the world that China is the cruelest country in the world regarding animals.
    That’s why animals are sent to China to be slaughtered, like donkeys and kangaroos. Because the other countries don’t have the heart to be so cruel.
    My heart especially goes out to those citizens who love animals and have such good hearts to stop the cruelty.
    Please stop the animal cruelty in China. Isn’t it time to be more knowledgeable and civilized regarding animals. It has been proven that torturing animals to death does not make men viral, nor does it make the meat taste better. It is so cruel and I am shocked that such horrors still exist in our world. I once wanted to visit China and meet the wonderful people, but now I could not because of the evil against animals.
    I pray for God’s hand to move on China and stop this cruelty

    The US should stop all imports of anything made in China. I’ll never purchase anything that came from China, I’ll never visit that despicable country or either of the Korea’s. Those sick countries just need to be bombed to oblivion.

    I am so glad these two so called police officers are receiving death threats. They deserve that and to be put in jail (but that won’t happen). People need to continue to work to change laws for pets/dogs & cats even in China. A growing number of people there do care about animals.

How could you people stand there and do NOTHING??? I hope these “cops” get what they deserve. I would then find this “old man” and make him accountable for this lie he told and the after math of the barbaric murder of a defenseless dog. No wonder we don’t like CHINA. This is the very reason. Your treatment of animals. You shouldn’t be VERY proud of yourselves.

    All dogs should be removed from China, the people there do not know how to take care of animals and have absolutely no sense at all. As to the people trying to stop the officer from beating the dog they have no backbone and they should be prosecuted too because they are an accessory to this poor dog’s death. I have a golden and they are the friendliest dogs you would ever want to meet so I can believe that the dog did walk up to a person wagging his tail. Rest in peace puppy, humans failed you yet again.

    China: The man is a Murderer Monster. Ask the killer why pick on a helpless, beautiful creature of God? And, why didn’t he just killed himself, that would have been justified to have prevented the atrocity against a loving, helpless dogs painful torturous and agonizing killings. Maybe an earthquake would have been better than what he did.

    Mr. Mayor, this action of cruelty was uncalled for on this animal. This brings shame to China, the officer, and on you if you allow the officer to go unpunished.

    Did anyone locate The golden retrievers owners? Where the hell were they? And what happened to the dogs body?

    The man that did this who’s name might be Hu Han Lin deserves to be killed off. He should be either clubbed to death like what he did or stabbed to death and left floating in the river somewhere in China.
