Dog owners are left sobbing on the ground, in pools of their pet dog’s blood as official ‘dog beaters’ laugh in their face. Dogs are usually thrown onto a corpse-lorry of bloodied dog corpses, or tossed into pits in the ground, where many of the dogs are still alive, groaning in pain. Distraught pet owners are often met with violence from the official ‘dog beaters’ known as the Chengguan. Pet cats and rabbits are also targeted.
China does not have animal protection laws. Members of the Chengguan across China are vehemently against China implementing animal protection laws because their line of work would be outlawed. Officially called the City Urban Administrative and Law Enforcement Bureau, the Chengguan operate in every community across China.
On August 4, 2016, the Alum Town government of Padang village, ordered a dog killing team to go door to door and kill every pet dog they could get hold of, after a local man died of rabies days earlier. The air was filled with the screams from helpless pet owner’s as their dogs were forcibly removed and bludgeoned in front of them. Children wept uncontrollably.
One young girl (pictured above), refused to let go of her loved pet, but it was ripped from her clutches, as she buckled in grief watching her dog’s head caved in from a government official swinging an iron bar. Some of the 26 dogs massacred were captured alive and tied into jute sacks and burned alive, as their screams rang out through the town.
If your a dog owner in Beijing or Shanghai you MUST carry your pet registration dog license and be able to produce it IMMEDIATELY when asked – no excuses! Authorities known as “Chengguan” have the power to demand your dog’s license and if you take too long to show it or it has expired or you forget to carry it, you will lose your dog on the spo
Pet owners have been forced to the ground and held down as their dog is beaten to death on the spot with a bamboo pole, then tossed onto the corpse wagon and carted away as street trash. It does not matter if you are Chinese or a foreigner, the rule applies across the board. This is simply heartbreaking. The thought of such a heinous act is truly devastating, how on earth can a decent human being have such evil in their heart and a lack of emotion? It hurts. It’s impossible not to feel anguish for these animals and the suffering that they have been forced to endure without a care for their rights or pain. I adore my dog and would do anything to show my dogs the affection I have for them. In fact, I’ve spent the past hour researching the best dog bike trailer. I want to make my dog’s life easier, not exterminate them in the most barbaric and repugnant fashion.
Fight Dog Meat sources in China said “Gangs have been beating unlicensed dogs to death for over twenty years but the international community doesn’t seem to know much about it. It especially happens in affluent areas such as Beijing and Shanghai, where many foreigners live, but they don’t report it. Dog license fees in Beijing and Shanghai are very expensive, although license fees in less affluent cities are less expensive.”
When a foreigner’s pet is beaten to death by ‘dog beaters’, foreigners are often too scared to speak up because of the very real threat of deportation. When a local Chinese person’s pet is beaten to death by ‘dog beaters’ they are often too scared to cause a ripple for fear of retaliation against their family.

November, 2013: A Chinese farmer’s two Tibetan Mastiff dogs were hunted down and over hours, beaten with shovels and bamboo poles and eventually shot several times each by police. Both dogs were docile and loved people, and lived on their owners farm where they guarded his sheep. The main photograph at the top of this page shows one of the dogs hiding on his own property. The dog had already been severely battered and bludgeoned, as you can see by the blood spatter around him on the concrete floor.
The two Mastiff dogs were violently pursued by over 100 people, over a course of hours. Both dogs suffered horrendous brutality and were eventually shot several times each. However, it was reported that the brown Mastiff (top photograph), was still alive after being shot so locals cut him while still alive, using the blade of their shovels. Afterward, officials and locals gathered and swapped stories and laughed about their triumph over the two pet dogs.
In March 2014 in Langzhong city, Sichuan province, two police officers publicly beat a homeless man’s dog to death in front of him, as he sat in the gutter frozen in shock and grief, watching the officers brutalize his dog for over 10 minutes! The dog was wearing a collar and on a leash throughout the entire ordeal, as officers struck it with a steel fork and shovel. The dog was the homeless man’s only friend and as the dog lay on the road blood splattered and lifeless, the man refused to let go of the leash (video credit: Tomo News.)
100 Dogs and Puppies Buried Alive
In April, 2014 animal rescuers from the Yinchuan Pets Home group were notified “there were some dogs in an open hole,” but when they arrived the number of animals was actually over 100 live dogs and puppies in a 20 foot deep pit which had been dug with heavy machinery, suggesting government officials were behind the excavation.
Due to circumstances the rescuers could not begin rescuing until first light the next morning, knowing the dogs would be safe because they couldn’t escape. The location was near a garbage dump in Alxa League, near China’s border with Mongolia, where dogs are regarded as vermin.
The next morning when rescuers arrived at the location of the pit they were absolutely horrified! The pit had been filled in during the night and they could hear whimpering coming from beneath the surface of the freshly filled dirt. The 100 alive dogs and puppies had been buried alive by Chinese officials. Digging by hand, rescuers were only able to retrieve four live animals: one new born puppy and three adult dogs while over 100 dogs and puppies died of suffocation in terror.
The following day rescuers returned to the site and hired an excavator, but instead of uncovering 96 dogs, they only found 6 dogs which had severe injuries in line with being hacked by an excavator. Over 100 dead dogs and puppies had been excavated and removed to an unknown location, in an attempt to cover-up the disgusting actions of government authorities, known as Chengguan.
The local Chengguan office denied the allegations and said an investigation had been launched. The Chengguan official told AFP “We are investigating if some stray dogs were buried alive. I can ensure you we didn’t do this kind of thing, and moreover, we are not in charge of stray dogs.’
The Chengguan have a reputation for heartless treatment of the people they monitor, who are often the poorest in Chinese society.One week prior to the 100 dogs being buried alive, four members of the Chengguan were beaten almost to death by a mob, after they witnessed an officer kill a street trader with a hammer.
50,000 Dogs Beaten To Death, Including Pets
A few years ago officials in the eastern city of Jining planned to kill all dogs within three miles of where rabies had been found, said the official Xinhua News Agency. Sixteen people had died of rabies over a span of eight months. At a later time, 50,000 dogs were beaten to death because 3 people died of rabies. Many of the 50,000 dogs were loved pets. Animal rights groups say the mass-murder of dogs shows the Chinese governments incompetence in being able to correctly deal with rabies or other routine heath issues.
Foreigner’s Pet Dog Beaten To Death
May, 2014: A British man living in Beijing and working as a teacher at a Chinese international school had his loved pet dog ‘One Eye’ beaten to death in front of him. (Teacher’s name withheld, for his safety.) The dog was within size regulations and had been a stray dog, known affectionately as ‘One-Eyed-Jack’ before being recently adopted by the teacher.
The dog had just had his vaccinations from the vet and was waiting for his license to arrive. When approached by officials, the teacher explained the situation (in Mandarin), about the vet and the adoption but the officials pushed him to the ground and held him down as they bludgeoned One Eye Jack to death in front of him.
In July 2014 ‘official dog beaters’ in Shijazjuang, a city near Beijing, were ordered to kill all dogs and unlicensed pets after the village cadre’s granddaughter was bitten by a dog. Even people with pet rabbits moved to other towns to save the life of their pets. ‘Dog beaters’ went door to door with bamboo poles killing every dog, including licensed ones, and pet owners were left sobbing over their butchered pets’ bloodied remains. Many people reported hearing dogs wailing across the city, as they were being massacred.
Ramada Plaza Hotel Pudong-Shanghai
July, 2014: Ramada Plaza Hotel, Pudong-Shanghai staff beat a heavily pregnant, docile and friendly stray dog for two hours, who was known as ‘Wampee.’ After torturing Wampee for two hours she was still alive so hotel staff then got a bucket of water and drowned the dog before slicing open her belly to spill the unborn puppies onto the ground to watch them die alongside their dead mother.
It was only after public condemnation that the Ramada Plaza Hotel claimed their staff members had been attacked by a supposedly rabies carrying dog. Local people who had known “Wampee” were outraged at the cruelty. Her killing was videoed by a hotel guest, but they were too scared to release the footage publicly in case authorities come after them. Ramada Plaza Hotel, 18 New Jinqiao Road, Pudong New District, Shanghai, is where the torture and killing of Wampee and her puppies took place.
In 2015 a licensed pet poodle being walked on a leash by it’s British owner when it was forcibly removed by Chengguan (authorities.) The poodle’s owner was screaming his dog was licensed, as he was violently forced to the ground and held down, while his dog bludgeoned in front of him.
China is a country with little mercy for anything or anyone. Not only does it endorse cruelty against animals, its equally as cruel to its own citizens. Taking a loved family pet and forcing distraught owners to lay on the ground to watch and hear their loved pet being bludgeoned again and again, as it screams for them to save it, would force many an owner into a mental breakdown. Violent bullying of people and obscene cruelty against their pets and street animals is despicable.
Having seem many dogs beaten and bludgeoned first hand in the dog and cat meat trade, I know for a fact dogs do not die easily and they do not die quietly! It is for certain that many dogs which are beaten would not be dead, but rather severely injured and left in terrible agony for hours on end, possibly even days, depending on when they are “trashed.”
Animal lovers around the world need to realize what is happening to “man’s best friend” within China. Millions of dogs and cats are slaughtered for dog and cat meat every year in China, but unknown numbers of dogs are also killed simply to get rid of them. Dogs and cats need to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies and other illnesses. Beating dogs to death with sticks is inhumane and unacceptable. China has a growing number of animal lovers and pet owners and it now time for China to implement and enforce animal protection laws.
Fight Dog Meat is working to try and help local animal lovers to bring in animal protection laws and end the brutal dog and cat meat trade. The world needs to know what is happening to innocent animals at the hands of monsters who blend into society.
