Love dogs but love the people more

People have the right to love their pet dogs. They also have the right to show their concern for even stray dogs.

Nevertheless, they have no reason to launch an online campaign against a policeman who killed a stray dog that had injured one person, bitten another and posed a threat to more passersby.

In Changsha, the capital of Hunan province, police received a report saying a stray golden retriever had injured a pedestrian and attacked another who, thanks to his "thick clothing", escaped physical injury. The stray golden retriever, even though it was chained to a railing on the pavement, could have bitten unsuspecting passersby if no action was taken. Worse, if the dog was afflicted with rabies, some of the victims could have contracted the disease and even lost their lives.
