Police caught a dog on Thursday after it injured more than 30 people in Beijing’s busy central business and embassy districts since Tuesday. Witnesses said the dog began biting people on Guanghua Road, near the Yonganli neighborhood. Some of the victims said the grey-white, medium-sized dog bit them near a shopping mall in that area. During the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday in mid-September, more than 2,000 Beijing residents were bit by dogs in just three days, arousing public concern and heated debate over the dog management regulations . Police claimed that managing the high number of ownerless dogs is very difficult, and enforcement is hard and cumbersome. The law which deals with stray dogs has not been updated for over a decade. In the Provisions on Dog Management in Beijing City, only one article is about the governance of stray dogs, requiring authorities to set up a shelter to handle those ownerless animals.
