LOUIS, WAIT! WHAT ARE ALL THOSE WIRES? WHAT ARE THOSE PODS?
OH, WHY DIDN’T I LOOK INSIDE THE LABORATORY SOONER?
LOUIS, WHAT’S HAPPENING?
LOUIS! COME BACK HERE! YOU’VE GONE MAD WITH SCIENCE!
After a long standoff right outside Beijing, an animal activist group managed to free the dogs by purchasing them for 115,000 yuan ($17,600). Conflicting reports differ on the number of dogs involved, but the Global Times has placed the number as high as 520.
Sadly, many of the dogs were found with collars and nametags, indicating that they may have been stolen from their beloved owners. The healthy dogs will be put up for adoption while the sick ones were sent to pet hospitals in the nation’s capital. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether some of the allegedly stolen dogs will ever be reunited with their owners.
