Animal lovers want tough laws

Animal lovers have made fresh calls for legislation to protect pets after discovering dozens of dead cats and dogs in a fridge in an apartment building in downtown Shanghai.

A group of six residents broke into the home of Yi Zhenglai on Xinzha Road after hearing reports that he makes a living by butchering small animals and selling the meat.

Zhu, who took part in the break-in on Thursday night and declined to give his full name, said they found a fridge filled with carcasses wrapped in plastic bags under a stairwell on the second floor of the apartment block.
