Outrage as Chinese man drags dog behind scooter through city

Animal lovers are outraged after a man in China was videoed on Sunday dragging a dog behind his scooter through the city. A video released by iFeng news showed the dog tied with a leash and being dragged in Shantou City, Guangdong Province.

According to the Daily Mail, the man was oblivious as he rode his scooter through the city to the animal cruelty, despite others pointing to the dog being dragged. It wasn’t until a person approached the man and purchased the dog, was the animal rescued from its torture. Viewers on Weibo, the Chinese microblogging website, expressed their outrage:

“Even if you don’t love animals, you shouldn’t torture and hurt them. Please treat all lives with respect – animals included,” were just a few of the comments left under the disturbing video.

 

China continues to lack legislation for animal welfare and preventing cruelty. Even though laws have been drafted outlining punishments and fines, no progress has yet to be instituted. Unfortunately animal abuse cases much like this one go unnoticed by the law. Increasing cases of animal cruelty and torture continues to cause controversy – including the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

It’s time animal abusers are brought to justice. Hong Kong and Taiwan have animal cruelty laws punishable by fines, jail terms and community service. Why not help animals in other parts of the country?

    Thank you to the kind soul who purchased this poor abused dog. Bless you!!
    China is basically heartless when it comes to animals. No animal is treasured….they are all nothing but food items to them!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank God someone did something to help this dog instead of just pointing fingers or taking phone pics. Hope this dog knows no more pain or fear and lives a good life. Obviously driver didn’t care about the dog to sell it so easily.

    Giant Thank you to the kindhearted person who stepped up for this little dog being dragged by some subhuman asshole. You saved a live – this little one would have died at the hands of this idiot and no one but this kind man did anything to help. The jerk on the scooter should be arrested, but this is China where animal welfare means nothing. But this little one was saved. More Chinese citizens need to step up for abused animals.

    And what else would you think of someone in China, the country that thought nothing of sending pet food and treats over here that were poisoning our pets. How many other animal atrocities have see seen from that country? Bless the person who saw this a purchased the poor dog and saved it. As in any country, there are good animal loving people, just in China they seem to be few and far between! .
