Police Are Now Using Pistols And Shovels To Kill Tibetan Mastiffs

Tibetan Mastiff shot and beaten 1

Not a week after we learned about a Tibetan Mastiff that was brutally shot to death by armed officers, here’s a story about two Tibetan Mastiffs shot — with pistols — and beaten — with shovels — by police officers and residents of a village in Shijiazhuang, Hebei province. NetEase has the story and pictures. Warning: pictures aren’t pleasant to look at.

The images begin to get graphic at this point in the slideshow (warning: graphic). Twenty officers were reportedly called in to put down the two dogs, which were “causing havoc.”

And to think: it wasn’t all that long ago that we thought Tibetan Mastiffs, which sold for record prizes at auctions, were considered exotic and precious in this country. The truth is: some Tibetan Mastiffs are fed abalone and sea cucumbers; others are just large mutts that are put down by whatever means. C’est la vie.

    Whine all you want, but these stupid dogs should NOT be in the cities to begin with, and killing them outright is by far the best solution for when they eventually get out of control and attack people. I literally do not care.

          Sure. Your scintillating commentary should be applied to large cars as well. I mean, the one fault you have found with these dogs is that they’re large, right? Besides being “stupid”, that is.

      Its a slow day in the GWN for me to respond to your moronic comment.
      “I literally do not care”. I for one REALLY care that imbeciles like you may comments that literally show your mm deep personality. These majestic canines are loose due to their irresponsible owners. There are no bad dogs, just bad owners. Loose animals that present a threat to themselves or humans should simply be captured and safe facilities, either to be reclaimed by their owners (at a hefty fine), or adopted by owners who prove themselves capable of providing a good home. Others should be humanely put down after a reasonable period, following the models of SPCAs.

      Mr.Y is correct, this shitty home-made news was written by stupid people who care so much about dogs, who do realize that these dogs were killed for a reason. It’s not a game, these are fierce dogs, even used in the Chinese Military, these are killer dogs. They are stray, you always kill them before they kill you, they are stray killer dogs, they’re basically as dangerous as wolves.

      Why do people kill wolves? Same reason they kill these kind of dogs.

        “Why do people kill wolves? Same reason they kill these kinds of dogs.”

        Exactly. Wolves are killed for killing livestock that are raised in areas that have ALWAYS belonged to wolves. We humans encroach on their territory and expect them to run off and leave us alone. When they come back onto their own land, we antagonize them and encourage them to attack us (which is the second reason why humans kill wolves: we blame them for reacting poorly to mistreatment, then kill them for not submitting to us). I think the final reason humans kill wolves (and large dogs like these) is because we’re afraid of them, and we want to say “Hey, we killed the big, scary monster” like it actually means something.

        That’s what it all boils down to: these dogs are suffering because people are evil and mean and horrible. They exist because we made them, and we can’t be bothered to care for them, so hey, let’s just kill them all. They’re broken toys that won’t do what they were made to do.

    You can argue, “Well I wouldn’t start from here if I were you” all you like but ultimately if there’s a dog of that size and strength running loose then it’s better to kill it by whatever means to hand than have it attack a kid. If you think it wouldn’t then you’ve never been around large feral dogs. It may be cruel but it’s considerably less so than explaining to a parent why their son or daughter won’t be coming home.

        Yes, I would go and capture that dog. I would shoot it with a tranquilliser and try to undo the damage that idiots like you and Mr.Y do with your “oh its big and scary we must kill it because it is evil by nature” attitude. If it poses any danger to man kind then kill it. What kind of idiots are you? There are ways and means around destroying life pointlessly although I highly doubt you or your kind have anywhere near the intelligence or compassion to realise that. I bet you sort out your problems by bare knuckle boxing the shit out of each other? Or maybe pissing in each others letterboxes or on each others wives to show dominance? If anything needs putting down its you and other creatures like you ……at least you can teach a dog!!
        I bid you good day creature. :)

    Conclusion: Chinese kill this dog for food. Chinese always do that. They cannot control there population and they are out of food so they most likely eat rats, cat, dogs, snakes and other species. One day, they will get diseases for eating this animals and this disease will spread rapidly and will wipe out their race.

    I was searching more info on this beautiful breed of dog, only to find pictures of humans (the assholes of the world) brutally killing them. What did the dogs do? The article doesn’t say if they hurt or killed anyone. We as humans, the so-called “superior species” see animals as lesser, disposable and unnecessary. I hope justice of some kind could be done, but this did happen in China and unfortunately WE can not do anything to keep this from happening again. We have enough trouble protecting animals in our own country from seeing such horrible fates.

    These are 200+lb dogs. Live stock guardians. Bred originally to combat the threat of wolves and LEOPARDS.
    Unsocialized and feral these are VERY dangerous animals.

    While i can’t agree with the means by which they were put down. I certainly understand the need to control and if need be eliminate the feral population.
    Think of that person at the vet being dragged around by their overly friendly 80LB lab.
    Now picture that lab at 220lbs, completely feral, and hungry.
    Thats not an animal that can be controlled…….

    It is a shame that these dogs were irresponsibly bred and sold to novice owners, but it is necessary to deal with such a threat.

    NO body should kill them if they are not attacking people. its written that they were causing havoc , not killing people. Let us not kill anything just assuming that it might attack us. another important thing is that govt. should ensure that such creature not come in streets and other open places. These dogs are previous they have great market in the world. Its shameful to kill such dogs that brutally by tabatian people who boast about “sufizm”.

    You’re illiterate. I don’t agree with what transpired, but these are not western bred Tibetans. There is a substantial blood lines used. These are “luxury” dogs. They are bred almost purely for look.
    Where as here in the states we regard our pets as family members. That being said most western bloodlines are just as selective for temperament as for looks.
    If you have no experience with feral animals, you’ll never be able to comprehend how they’re wired.
    You couldn’t tame these dogs, as heartbreaking as that is, anymore than you could tame a wolf.

    Your intent is noble. Unfortunately its not realistic to think you can reform feral animals.
    These dogs are unbelievable animals. Loyal, smart, stalwart, and VERY large.
    Left to their own devices, especially wild, that makes these dogs exceptionally dangerous.
    While I can’t agree with inhumane execution, in a country with such a horrible human rights track record, you can’t be surprised by the handling of this situation.
    Chemical euthanizing via darts would’ve been the way to handle this.
    I cannot stress how against taking lives I am, but a200+lb feral animal is unbelievably dangerous.

            Thank you, but seriously tranquilizing them or something is the way to go about it not killing them with shovels/pistols in big gangs. Animals get scared too and feel pain like us, especially domesticated animals so they need to be treated in a humane manner should they pose a real threat to people. And just remember as I have often heard before, there is no such thing as a bad dog just a bad owner. As a dog owner all my life I know that for a fact and it annoys me that animals have to bare the brunt of the mistreatment they received. Just consider that. I’m not some hippy I’m just being logical. The way I look at it is there’s a 2% difference between ourselves and apes, imagine a race 2% more developed than ourselves came to earth and treated us how we treat animals? We would be screwed, and no amount of pleading or whining would ever change it because just like animals we would have no voice. Never forget that we are but animals, we just happen to be ahead at the minute in the evolutionary race (although sometimes I really do wonder) but anyways there is some food for thought. :)

      Either because you were beaten as a child, which if the case I am really sorry you endured that or because you think killing something that without the weapon you use would kill you makes you seem powerful would be the only two reason you would say that. If the latter, then the battle with that is something that will have to find a way to win, seeming unacceptable and painful to let it go at first soon gives way. If because you think doing would make you special, you are lost and likely suffering from that daily. Mounting animals on walls….21st century….wow how far we have to go before our species evolves enough to have a decent shot at long-term survival.

    I love the fact that people are bitching about Asians, when other cultured people have done a lot worst than this. I agree it is too brutal and it is heart breaking to see a mob of people just beating a dead animal, it’s just sad. To all those who says Chinese/Asians are stupid/ugly/nasty/etc are fucking stupid. I like to remind you different “colored” people what you guys have done hmm? Might I remind you, who was it that almost annihilated all the Jewish people? Or the fact that there are people who bred different dogs just to sell them despite how poorly the environment they were born in, some does not even survive in the first few weeks. I assume those comment about Asian are immature dumbass kids who knows nothing and are discriminating due to actions of a few Asian even though their actions are horrid. So how about go fuck yourselves and get education, you dumb fucks.

    When you own a pet you got to take responsibility for its actions. But if, let’s say “specially gifted” think in their minds that its an easy job to do so, you are sadly mistaken. There have been so many reports of big dogs mauling and in some cases killing. Never forget its the owner not the dog that’s at fault. Yes, in some cases if there are fatalities then euthanization Is a choice, NOT the answer. But the unwarranted killing of big dogs is just moronic. People with this idea in mind, have a place in HELL.

    There are so many trolls on here looking to get a rise out of people that it’s almost as humorous as it is pathetic. Your attempts to piss people off by saying the dogs ‘deserved to die’ are absolutely ridiculous. First off, there is absolutely no proof that these dogs were doing anything but walking down the streets of the city, getting in peopls way. They were SURROUNDED by gangs of people weilding weapons that were being slung at them; do you really think that they wouldn’t have gone after those people if they were as dangerous as you claim? ANY dog, be it a shepherd, tibetan mastiff, or a god damn jack russell, has the capacity and mindset to kill a human being, so for anyone to claim that it’s better to kill these ‘giant, agressive, untameable dogs’ is a complete and utter idiot. Even if these dogs HAD done something to warrant a death penalty, bludgeoning them to death and shooting them in public with improper weapons is just stupid. This is a POLICE FORCE that was called in, so why not try showing a bit of professionalism while your at it, instead of just raping nature like this?

    And for the dumbass who commented about wolves attacking people; do your research. Though there have been a number of attacks from all over the world, if you look into it you will see that many, if not most, were the cause of either rabies, agression toward the wolf from the human, or because the human has gone into the WOLFS territory and is taking their resources, NOT because wolves are bloodthirsty man killers. Get real.

    Everyone else, don’t even bother with these dumbasses, it’s probably the same guy under a different name trying to get a rise out of you because he has nothing better to do. As humans, we have the insight to know morally what is right or wrong. Those dogs are there because their owner neglected them and left them tot heir own devices, and if that means they have to scavange the city and compete with humans because nobody has a brain, than that’s what they’ll do, and quite frankly, I could care less how many people were hurt in the process; I don’t sympathize with humanity. Sure it sucks that innocent people get hurt, but you know what? Fuck it. We’ve been abusing, mis-using, and forsaking these animals SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING, and if we now have to deal with those mistakes in the form of strays hurting people (which very few actually do unless confronted), maybe we should have considered the consequences to our actions before we decided to screw those dogs out of a proper life int he first place.

    It just sucks they had to go out the way they did. Not one picture was shown with the dogs snarling, causing trouble, or even looking threatening; in the one pic they are chasing it down the street with shovels- you really dont think that dog wouldn’t take a chunk out of them if it wanted to? That’s just animal cruelty, and quite frankly I hope at least one of those dumbasses got bitten; BAD.
