A Tsinghua University PhD graduate in China boasted about beating a small dog to death “because it barked too much” at night. He later bragged to the media how “perfectly reasonable” it was to kill the stray dog because it had disturbed his sleep.
According to the Daily Mail, the small dog, nicknamed “Little Black” had lived in the neighborhood of Chengdu near the school for the past two years. The man who beat the dog, identified by Red Star News as Liu Fei, bragged about his “bravery” helping the police to “get rid of it.”
Witnesses stated that Liu chased the dog with a wooden club beating it into a neighbor’s home, and then called police to help. The police and Liu tied a rope around the dog’s neck and stuffed it into a sack, but the panicky animal was able to use his teeth to escape. Liu then pinned the dog down to the ground and tied its feet with more ropes.
The dog later died and animal advocates and much of social media have since condemned Liu’s heartless actions.
“[It] was beaten to death by a man who had just moved in and claimed that the dog stopped him from sleeping. It was too cruel,” a witness posted.
Some readers however, defended Liu and stated it was important to deal with stray dogs. There are no laws in China against animal cruelty or preventing animal cruelty. Some cities in China have enacted rules about residents keeping pets putting restrictions on the times a dog can be walked or exercised. Other new residential builders of apartment houses have contracts specifically excluding dogs. China has a long way to go.
