hinese netizens are demanding that a university freshman be expelled after a stray cat was found dead just outside of campus, pierced by four arrows.
The unnamed student is said to have used a bow and arrow to kill the cat soon after arriving at the Hubei University of Economics for his first semester of college. Yesterday, photos of the unfortunate feline, discarded in a dumpster started going viral on Chinese social media.
Fellow students pulled the cat out of the dumpster and took it to a pet hospital for treatment. However, despite spending nearly 1,000 yuan, the animal’s life could not be saved.
The student is said to have killed the cat during a break from mandatory military training and while his friends were shooting video.
On Tuesday night, the university announced that it attached “great importance” to the incident and was launching an investigation with the help of police. It’s not clear what sort of punishment the student will face, however, on Weibo, many netizens are calling for him to be expelled.
