Breed-Specific Legislation in Beijing: Police Brutally Confiscate Large-Breed Dogs

While dog owners in the U.S. are engaged in a never-ending battle with people who want to enact dangerous-dog laws, dog owners in Beijing are facing an unimaginable crackdown.

Though Beijing has banned large-breed dogs since 2003, in the past couple of weeks the police have suddenly begun rounding up dogs, according to a story in the New York Times.

What does that look like? Imagine police carrying about nighttime raids, bursting into homes, and snatching up dogs — “wrenched from the grip of their distraught owners,” writes the Times, “even those that had been legally registered with the authorities.”
