The Suzhou Post Bureau intercepted 13 pet blind boxes, in which the animals were found dead, in Suzhou, East China’s Jiangsu province, on Tuesday.

The packages, intercepted at the ZTO outlet, were sent from Pizhou city last Wednesday, and arrived in Chengdu on Friday. However, they were transported to Suzhou by mistake and were reported to the bureau by local residents.

Criticism of pet blind boxes has become heated in China after volunteers from an animal rescue center in Chengdu intercepted about 160 pet packages at the local ZTO outlet last week.

The pet blind box, which allows buyers to purchase pets of unknown breeds and appearance, has been popular on multiple e-commerce platforms in the country.

Bureau workers are investigating the case and will release information to the public as soon as possible.
