A puppy who sought shelter inside of a university dormitory met with a cruel end thanks to staff members who ruthlessly beat him to death. According to Metro News, the horrific situation took place at Ankang University in north-western China’s Shaanxi province
Condemnation from PETA
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia have condemned the cruel situation. The animal welfare agency was told by university students that the puppy ‘howled in agony for minutes’ while the security staff chased and beat him. PETA has condemned the killing and is calling for the employees involved to be dismissed – the agency is also calling for ’empathy training.’
China is severely lacking for animal-welfare laws. PETA said, “This incident is yet another reason why China must implement animal-welfare laws – for the sake of all animals, and because the public demands it.”
Better ways to deal with strays
Obviously, there are more humane ways to deal with stray animals. Bludgeoning a puppy to death in a student dormitory should never happen – anywhere.
Keith Kuo, PETA Asia media officer for China, told Asia Wire:
“The most effective way to prevent overpopulation of cats and dogs on the streets is by implementing strict laws mandating spaying and neutering – violent acts like this one don’t address the problem.”
