Healthcare worker filmed beating corgi to death in locked-down Shanghai sparks anger

  • A video showing a healthcare worker beating a corgi to death on the streets of Shanghai amid a lockdown has gone viral.
  • The dog’s owners, who tested positive for COVID-19 and needed to be quarantined, said they let their dog out on the streets so it could have a better chance at surviving there than inside their home alone with no one to feed it.
  • “We hoped to let him outside to be like a stray dog. We didn’t want him to starve to death,” one of the dog’s owners said. “As long as he could live, it would be OK. We never expected that he would be beaten to death.”
  • In a statement released via a state-run media outlet on Thursday, local neighborhood committee members admitted they had the corgi killed since they were “afraid of being infected.”
  • Officials said that the incident was “thoughtless.”
  • Similar incidents of pets being killed after their owners tested positive for COVID-19 have also been reported in China’s Jiangxi Province and Guangdong Province in the past six months.

A video of a healthcare worker beating a corgi to death in Shanghai after its owners tested positive for COVID-19 has gone viral on Chinese social media.

The dog’s owners, who needed to be quarantined, said they let their pet out on the streets, believing it would have a better chance at surviving there than inside their home alone with no one to feed it.
