A Hunan man who kidnapped dogs and sold the meat has died after accidentally shooting himself with a poisoned dart, SCMP reports.
According to local media, the man was reportedly demonstrating to colleagues how to use a crossbow to shoot poisoned darts when the weapon went off, hitting him in the leg. He died en route to the hospital.
The irony, it burns.
Five other members of the gang were later arrested. They confessed to killing over 1,000 dogs, freezing the carcasses in order to sell later.
Police in Zhejiang province recently busted a gang responsible for producing over 11 tons of dog meat, mostly from pets and strays poisoned with tainted meat.
