A man in Zhushan county, Hubei province, kept his dog's body in a freezer for two years so he could win a lawsuit against a driver.

The owner surnamed Chen placed the dog in the freezer on July 5, 2007, after it was struck and killed by the driver surnamed Li.

He had requested 10,000 yuan ($1,464) in a lawsuit but the court asked Li to pay 12,120 yuan in compensation to Chen.
