A cute puppy fell victim to the idiotic policies of one Chinese university after the school determined he was a threat to students and faculty. They poisoned him alive before tossing him in the garbage.
Casper, a good dog, enjoyed auditing classes at Northwest A&F University in northwestern China’s Shaanxi province. He would routinely sit in on lectures, and he would pick out a nice, comfy seat before taking a nap when the topic of class bored him–a practice we can all relate to.
Look at this cute dog. This cute dog is in college. I know humans who aren’t in college:
From The Daily Mail:
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.’
I don’t know about you guys, but I have sat around and let bullshit Chinese policies and rules run amuck for too long. I will not stand by and do nothing as another 100 degree-seeking puppies are euthanized and thrown in the trash. No. Not on my watch. It reminds me of a famous poem that I may or may not remember correctly:
First they came for the second-borns, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a second-born.
Then they came for the gymnasts, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a gymnast.
Then they came for the puppies, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a puppy.
Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
Go to hell, China..
