On Sept. 20, a white dog bit and injured dozens of people in the Chaoyang District of Beijing. On Sept. 22, a reporter from Beijing Youth Daily called the Chaoyang Police Department and was told that a white dog matching the description given by the dog's victims had been caught; however, they haven’t yet confirmed that the dog in custody is the same one that bit so many innocent bystanders.

Mr. Li, one of the victim's, said that he was out with a friend in the Guangqumen area around 2 p.m. when a lean, white dog suddenly appeared and bit his ankle. Right after, the dog ran away. Mr. Li’s friend said that Li called the police at once and even followed the dog a distance in an effort to find its owner. He also witnessed the dog bite a child and then a security guard.

On the evening of Sept. 20, Beijing's Center for Disease Control and Prevention released news that a total of 30 people had been bitten by the dog, and subsequently treated with a rabies vaccination and outpatient service. After receiving several reports, police hurried to the scene to catch the dog.

On Sept. 22, the Chaoyang Police Department told Beijing Youth Daily that a white dog has been caught; however, they haven’t confirmed whether this dog is the one responsible for the recent incidents.
