Money is the root cause of many crimes and this was proved yet again when a Chinese man thrashed his dog to death for losing a race he put his money in.

After buying the dog for a good amount of money, the man had expected to earn it back by making the creature participate in races.

Sadly, one such race proved to be the last one for the dog.

In a video that is going viral in China, the man is seen killing the dog by thrashing its head against the ground several times.

Once the dog was dead, he stood near its corpse and said, "Listen up, dog owners. If your dog isn’t good enough, eat it. It lost the race, so now I’m going to eat its meat."

What the actual fuck are humans doing to this planet?
