A dog has been treated for severe injuries sustained after it was thrown from an 18th floor window by its owner Monday, angering many Web users who have renewed calls for improvements to animal welfare in China.

Witnesses told the Global Times that they found a Bichon Frise dog lying on a car covered with blood at a residential complex near Baiziwan Lu, Chaoyang district, on Monday evening.

"The owner, who lives on the 18th floor, admitted he dropped his dog from his apartment because it ran into the bathroom when he was bathing; such cruel behavior. It should be an offence," said a woman surnamed Sun, who lives on the building's first floor.

The falling dog smashed the car's windscreen.

Police confirmed the dog owner was taken to the police station Monday, but did not clarify if he had been arrested.

"He is still at our police station now. This person is sane, and poses no threat to other residents' safety," said a police officer, who refused to give his name.

According to Sun, who runs a pet shop and knows most dog owners at the compound, the suspect is a 40-year-old man who never walked his dog outside.

"He looks like an unsociable person. He rarely says hello to the neighbors and even didn't say thank-you when I did a favor for him one time," Sun said.
