Stray cats and dogs are a huge problem all around the world. In the Shandong province in China, a pet ban was issued. A ban on having pets, period. Even if the pet was licensed – banned. In the Chinese city of Yunnan, a rabies outbreak that killed 5 people resulted in the deaths of 5,000 dogs.
In China, strays are often caught and taken to slaughterhouses – illegal dog snatchers will often use crossbows and arrows to catch the dogs. A bow and arrow – really? What happened to those big nets on poles? Which brings us to Beijing’s 798 Arts District, near a metro station.
A large black dog was seen with an arrow in his head – yes, an arrow. There were plenty of onlookers who got pictures of the dog. It wasn’t a short arrow either, and it went all the way through the poor dog’s head!
The helpless dog was walking around and trying desperately to get the arrow out! Some passersby gathered up the dog and took him to an animal hospital. As it turns out, the arrow only went through the dog’s scalp, and it was easily removed with no internal injuries.
This story makes you wonder who shot the dog, this could not have been an accident. The dog was lucky to have been found and ‘rescued’!
