‘Animal rights’ activists on trial

SIX people stood on trial at the Pudong New Area People’s Court yesterday for beating up two people and forcing them to eat cat wastes.

The six, calling themselves “animal lovers,” suspected the victims to have maltreated pets.

Four people of the six had already compensated the victims with cash and were forgiven by them, the court said.

Prosecutors said the six suspects — four women and two men aged between 21 and 41 — found online videos showing cats and dogs being abused and killed. They started to follow the creator of videos online and started to track down two men surnamed Liu and Yi.

They schemed a plan to “teach them a lesson.”

On July 30, one of the suspects surnamed Zeng lured one of victims to a grove in the Pudong New Area. Though they were aware that Liu and Yi were not the two abusers they saw online, they believed them to be the their accomplices.

The six of them beat them up, cut their hair and forced them to eat cat wastes.

Both Liu and Yi suffered bruises all over the body.

Police first arrested two women surnamed Ji and Xu. Zeng was arrested from her home in Minhang District on August 11. The other three suspects later surrendered to the police.

The court has yet to give a verdict in the case.
