The events were sparked after a local media outlet misreported Dr. Li Lanjuan comments about pets that do come in contact with the virus.
Dr. Li Lanjuan originally stated that, “if pets come into contact with suspected patients, they should be quarantined.” The small tabloid press later printed the headline “Cats and Dogs Can Spread the Coronavirus,” ultimately leading to state wide panic.
It was later made worse when Zhibo China posted it on social media platform Weibo.
Keith Guio, PETA Asia press officer for China, has condemned these incredible cruel and inhumane actions: “We hope the police can find the cold-blooded guardians of those poor animals as soon as possible.”
“In fact,” Guio continued, “it’s the filthy factory farms, slaughterhouses, and meat markets that threaten the health of every human being on the planet by providing a breeding ground for deadly diseases like Coronavirus, SARS, bird flu, and more.”
