this is what happens to thieves who provide stolen dogs to butchers
The residents demanded 1 million Yuan in exchange for the men. Several people just started laying down in front of the police cars to prevent them from taking the men to get medical help.
Public Security Bureau and Yizhang County officials had to intervene to end the protests. Several locals are now facing prison sentences for attacking a police officer. The two dog thieves are also in custody.
“It is most unfortunate that local residents lost control of themselves and now find themselves on the wrong side of the law. The focus gets shifted off the guilty dog thieves and onto residents who over stepped their boundaries, but are otherwise upstanding citizens.
