Fake news about coronavirus spreading to animals — cats and dogs — in China has resulted in panicked pet owners throwing their cats and dogs out of tower blocks. The home to the outbreak, Wuhan, saw one dog being thrown from a block of flats in Tianjin City in Hebei Province. Local media reports state that the dog was thrown from the upper floors at 4 am, after which the pooch smashed into the sunroof of a car before ending up on the ground.
One picture showed a dog found dead after allegedly being thrown from tower blocks in China.
Local media stated the pooch was thrown from the upper floors of a tower block at 4am and smashed into the sunroof of a car before ending up on the ground.
Five cats were also thrown to death in Shanghai, with locals apparently saying they were pets as they had smooth and clean fur, say unconfirmed reports.
It was the noise that reportedly woke up the neighborhood and which was as loud as a tire explosion. The families that hurried out found to their horror a dog on the ground with blood staining around the dog.
