A man in Chengdu, Sichuan province was recently assaulted by furious animals rights activists after allegedly running a "dog brothel" and sexually violating a number of canines.

According to online videos, the man was dragged out of his house while naked by an angry crowd. The activists kicked and punched him as many onlookers stood nearby. Some held banners reading: “Pervert sexually assaulted female dogs, going against morality.”

The unidentified man was put into administrative detention for suspected animal abuse, as well as for distributing videos of the abuse for profit, Chengdu Economic Daily reported. It remains unknown whether any members of the crowd have been punished for the assault.

Jiang Yun, an animal rights activist at the scene, told the newspaper that it wasn't the activists who beat the man, but rather his neighbors.

“Volunteers dragged him out of his house after we found evidence of what he had done,” Jiang said.

Undercover activists began to contact the man after he started posting animal abuse videos in a QQ group chat with over 200 members. Several activists requested further communication with the man, who then allegedly took off his clothes for a “demonstration,” the newspaper noted.

A number of online posts claimed that the man had not only adopted dogs for the purpose of sexual abuse, but that he even offered Chengdu-based members of the QQ chat the opportunity to “rape female dogs in a way that serves us all.” Such services were priced at 50 yuan, Chengdu Economic Daily noted.

For now, the abused dogs have been sent to a local animal hospital. They will be taken to an adoption center once they are fully recovered.

According to Sichuan-based lawyer Huo Zishi, it's likely that the man will be punished under criminal law for spreading pornography rather than for organizing prostitution.
