As if animal cruelty can’t get any worse in China, another viral video captured a man dragging his newly adopted dog behind his vehicle because the dog smelled, and its “stench was too strong.”
According to Asia One, the man adopted the dog on June 5, and then tied the animal to the back of his car to take it home. Video of the disturbing situation showed a large black dog being dragged by the car, and at one point when the car stopped at a traffic light, the dog fell over from sheer fright and exhaustion. As the light turned green, the dog got back on his feet and tried his best to run behind the car, but collapsed again and is dragged. The man never turned around to check on the dog’s welfare.
As the video quickly circulated on social media after witnesses uploaded photos and videos of the poor pup, authorities were prompted to stop the man. Criticism of the cruel owner was swift and harsh. The condition of the dog is not known.
The man was fined 100 yuan ($14.00).
There are currently no nationwide laws in China prohibiting the animal cruelty.
Some may believe that fostering is just “too hard,” but the pay off is incredible! Spread the word, you can survive fostering, and save a life in the process! This beautiful design reads, “I survived loving a foster dog until a furever home was found” #Youcantoo
