In nearby Suzhou, a pet dog was accidentally crushed by a passing minivan. Just how is this news? Stay with me. When the owner found out, he became so infuriated that he forced the driver and passenger of the car to kneel over his pet’s corpse for an hour as an apology.
An eyewitness who requested to remain anonymous says he was watching from his building when around 12 noon, he saw a green postal minivan hit a dog that’d come out into the street suddenly. When the driver and passenger got out to check, the life had been well snuffed out of the pooch. The outraged owner, a 20-something male, demanded 5,000 RMB in compensation, and even started getting physical with the men. When the two men from the minivan didn’t have the money to pay up, he forced them to kneel in front of his dead dog’s body for one hour.
An older woman who saw the commotion decided to call the police but neither side allowed the police to intervene when they arrived. After their hour of kneeling in the wind and cold was up, the dog owner took the body away and the two men who’d been forced to kneel got up and left without saying a word.
