A MAN who allegedly livestreamed himself raping dogs was stripped and beaten by an angry mob of animal rights activists.
The unnamed man reportedly beat the poor canines into submission before having sex with them, while broadcasting the abusive content live to thousands of viewers.
Dog lovers first noticed the horrific streams three weeks ago and traced the man to the township of Shiling in Chengdu, China.
The alleged abuser was then lured to a ‘meet up’ by cunning animal fanatics who posed as fans.
The man was then attacked by dozens of activists who had set a trap in a rented room.
He was stripped of all his clothing and beaten for several minutes.
Viral footage of the incident shows the man sprawled completely naked in the street as the mob surrounds him carrying a banner asking for laws against the abuse of so-called ‘small animals’.
The beating was eventually stopped by local residents who called the police before the man was taken to hospital where he is recovering.

However, authorities are investigating him for the disgusting content he streamed online.
Police are also investigating the actions of the angry mob although no arrests have been made.

Officials in a Chinese city said larger parking spaces meant only for female drivers are in response to difficulties women have while parking. The female-only spaces, designated in parking lots in the Tonglu highway service area in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, are 50 percent larger than normal parking spaces and are outlined in pink with a drawing of a skirted figure similar to one that might be found on a bathroom door. Pan Tieyong, director of the Tonglu highway service area, said the spots were installed in response to female drivers in the area having trouble backing into spots and being seen "parking carelessly." Pan, who said the spaces were inspired by similar schemes in other cities and abroad, said the female-only parking spots have been well received by female motorists and the highway service plans to expand the program. The parking plan has been criticized by many on social media, with at least one Weibo user branding the spaces a form of sexism. "True respect for women entails letting women enjoy the same rights as men," the user wrote. Similar female-only parking spots installed in Seoul, South Korea, in 2009 are the same size as other spots, but are located closer to the doors of businesses in a bid to reduce the danger of sexual assault.
