Hundreds of Abandoned Tibetan Mastiffs Now Roam Rural China Attacking People in Packs

Tibetan mastiffs were once considered one of the world’s most coveted and expensive dogs, but now they’re becoming a big problem in rural Tibet, with at least 500 stray dogs inhabiting numerous villages in Qinghai Province.

However, these stray mastiffs are known to be more of a threat to the Chinese province’s livestock and residents. According to Shanghaiist, there had already been civilian casualties involving Tibetan mastiff attacks, including the death of an 8-year-old girl in November 2016.
