Hell hath no fury like a pet owner whose helpless dog was hit and killed by a speeding car.
Over the last few months, roughly a dozen vehicles were allegedly set on fire by a female dog owner from Changchun in Jilin Province, northeastern China after her dog was killed in a hit-and-run.
As per SCMP, the 45-year-old woman was arrested as the investigation progressed. She was reportedly caught having two cigarette lighters in her jacket.
It appears the series of arson attacks was carried out on a single estate. “We couldn’t even sleep at night, with random spots often torched up. How could we not be afraid?,” one resident recalled.
Others complained and expressed their concern over their area’s lack of street lights and surveillance cameras.
Meanwhile, despite the obvious damages, several insurers refused to pay for claims, Cnjiwang.com noted.
