Daily Mail – Chinese students are furious after university officials killed a dog which had become a campus mascot after it started attending lectures.
Casper the dog would regularly sit in on English and calculus at the Northwest A&F University in Yanglin County in the city of Xi’an, in north-western China’s Shaanxi province.
The story of Casper began to circulate in local media and on social networks, however university officials did not appreciate the attention, and poisoned the dog.
Student Xiong Hou, 21, said: ‘It was felt the dog had a really good influence on people, and as far as I know none of the lecturers objective. ‘Sometimes they would joke that only the dog was paying attention. I think he liked the English classes and calculus because the seats were best there for him to sleep on.
‘But when he didn’t turn up at the canteen at midday which he usually did to get food with the rest of us, somebody was horrified to see his body in the bin. ’Apparently he had been poisoned by university officials.’
A spokesman for the university confirmed that the dog together with other stray dogs on the campus had been killed, saying that they were a potential danger to the teachers and students.
The spokesman said: ‘We cannot tolerate strays on the campus as they make a mess and also pose a risk that they might bite someone, which ultimately means it’s our responsibility.’
Another student at the University, Xiao Wang, 23, added: ‘It wasn’t necessary to kill Casper, he would sit all day long in classes so he was hardly a threat to anyone. ’They were just embarrassed that he made them look unprofessional. But actually I think having a pet in the class is actually progressive and forward-thinking. Many people are very sad.’
Ok enough is enough. I can handle the economic threat. I can look the other way for the corporate espionage. I can turn the other cheek for the talk of trying to take over as the world’s biggest superpower right in our face. But this has gone too far. This has crossed a line. Murdering a poor helpless dog in cold blood and disposing of his body like a candy bar wrapper. Casper the Dog just trying to attend class and take notes and be a productive part of the student body and administrators poison him and dump him in the trash. And yes there is a picture of his dead body stuffed in a random garbage can on campus on the Daily Mail link but I will certainly not be posting it here. It’s enough to justify war with China though IMO. Those cold hearted motherfuckers. If they can do that to a dog what could they do to our citizens when they march in here someday? Time to be proactive Obama.
