“My child kept ask­ing me why some peo­ple harm cats. I don’t know how to an­swer him. If some­one does this just for amuse­ment, that is re­ally sick.”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

So said a woman sur­named Wang who lives in Tongzhou dis­trict. Over the past two weeks, Wang found quite a few stray cats in her neigh­bor­hood with metal darts stick­ing into their bod­ies. Some even had darts stuck in their heads and were vis­i­bly dy­ing. Wang and some friends brought one of the tor­tured cats to a lo­cal pet clinic, where the vet said it was very likely some­one was throw­ing darts at them on pur­pose. Some neigh­bor­hood res­i­dents re­ported the an­i­mal cru­elty case to lo­cal po­lice, who are now in­ves­ti­gat­ing. (Source: Bei­jing Morn­ing Post)
