Payout over dog killer fatal dispute

THE family of a man who died trying to stop a dog poisoner killing pets has been awarded 1.1 million yuan (US$176,450) compensation, Jiading District People’s Court announced yesterday.

The dog poisoner, surnamed Li, had already been jailed for two and a half years for endangering public security.

In 2012, Li used muscle relaxant succinylcholine — which in certain doses can cause fatal breathing difficulties — to kill dogs to sell for meat.

On July 22, as Li was about to drive home with 12 dogs killed in Baoshan and Jiading districts, he was stopped by a pedestrian, surnamed Zhao.

Zhao, who’d earlier seen Li killed a dog, remonstrated with him. During the dispute, a dart containing succinylcholine accidentally pierced Zhao’s head.

Li called police and sent Zhao to a nearby hospital, but he later died.

Li said he would make every effort to pay.
