On social media, the outrage was swift as millions of upset activists witnessed this innocent Chinese dog shot with arrows.
When Wildlife Planet devoted an entire section of our suite to exposing China's animal abuse, we were labeled racist.
But when Qiao Wei, took this picture of a Chinese dog after it was shot with arrows, we felt vindicated. The animal lover was hailed a real hero by many posters because he stepped in and rescued the dog. Unlike a many in China, Qioa understands dogs are living, breathing beings with feeling, not unlike humans.
Qioa knew this dog was suffering, so he stepped in and brought the poor animal to the hospital. This scene is all too familiar in China, and it shows the level of cruelty man can inflict on innocent animals.True a Majority Of Chinese Reject Dog Meat... But...The dog meat trade is an industry that is morally repulsive.
Critics of our reporting counter with "A majority of Chinese rejects dog meat." While this statement is 100% true, that still leaves 300 million Chinese supporting it. A number equivalent to the entire population of the United States.
The suffering of this dog angered millions of animal lovers, both in and outside of China. People throughout the world are fighting every day to get President Xi Jinping to end the brutality.
But the continued silence from Chinese leadership is tantamount to as giving the dog meat trade their unspoken blessing.
Until China starts doing the correct and moral thing, they will never shed their image of animal abusers. Images like this just reinforce the barbaric, dog eating, morally corrupt, society for which China is known.
For those who disagree, I present to you, the Yulin Festival as evidence that my evaluation and condemnation of China are valid. Read more related posts in our China's Animal Cruelty Section
