Disturbing footage emerged online of a man from China brutally slamming his greyhound to the floor until it died. It has been reported that the man became infuriated after betting ‘a fortune’ on the race dog and then losing. Near the end of the video the man could be seen suggesting that he eat the dog after he brutally beat it to death.
Cell phone footage reveals a man from Northern China grabbing a dog by its hindlegs and viciously slamming it onto the ground.
The man could be heard shouting and screaming throughout the video.
It was in the Ziong county of the Hebei Province on December 3 when this video was recorded. He could be seen repeatedly hitting the canine onto the ground until it became lifeless and left its body in a pool of its own blood.
He yelled: ‘you made me lose my money!’
An unknown person who spoke on the video said that the man had spent a lot of money to purchase the greyhound and then to put it in the dog race competition.
The unidentified man went on to say that he then bet heavily on his own dog who then subsequently lost the race.
As blood dripped down his hands, he circled the corpse of the greyhound and said: ‘listen up dog owners. If your dog is not in a good fit, eat it.’
Since the inception of the video on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo, it has accumulated more than two and a half million views. China does not have any laws prohibiting people from torturing animals so even if the man is identified he will more than likely not be prosecuted.
Near the end of the video the dog owner even threatened to cook the dog and eat it after its death.
Many people on social media were rightfully agitated at this horrific murder. One person named Michiko wrote: ‘such a useless man, his mother should slam him on the floor the same way as he did to the dog!’ Another wrote: ‘the dog is innocent in this, he is absolutely crazy and heartless to animals.’
