Some Chinese community officers have reportedly been beating stray dogs to death in an attempt to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,000 people. The Daily Mail obtained a video from animal activists reportedly showing an officer hitting a small dog with a long wooden stick until it stopped moving. Another clip sent to the paper shows people taking away the corpses of dead dogs. Nanchong Stray Animal Rescue told the Daily Mail two strays were killed Tuesday morning. Nanchong is a city in China’s Sichuan Province.
