A villager in Guilin City caught the men in the act as they were stealing his dog - shortly thereafter, the thieves were dealt swift justice as an angry neighborhood mob mobilized with sticks, rocks and bricks and proceeded to pummel them, and their car.
The men who were beaten are accused of roaming the homes in the area, looking for dogs to steal - when large enough dogs were located, the men allegedly drugged them, dragged them to their vehicle and killed them.
The men are accused of selling the dogs' meat to area eateries.
Eventually, after the mob demanded that they receive compensation for the pet dogs who had already been killed, the thieves' families showed up and promised to pay for the dogs who had died.
