Animal cruelty of the day: Three mice are tied up to and 'paraded publicly' on a street tree in Chengdu because they steal vegetables:
The picture, taken by Shuangliu police near their office in Chengdu city, Sichuan province Friday afternoon, shows three mice (or rats) were tied up to a tree, accompanied by a notice sticking on one of the mice 'confessing: I was wrong, I repent’, Sichuan Online reported.

The police, amused by the scene, published the picture on their verified Weibo account @平安双流 at 1:24 pm on Friday.

According to Sichuan Online, the rats were captured by an employee named Liu Junjiang in a local advertisement company. Liu and his colleagues found some rats often run around in their newly refurbished office, steal vegetables, and even gnaw through the cable. On Friday, they managed to capture three rats and after a discussion, they decided to publicly parade them on a tree on the street.

The rats, after drawing national attention, have been untied from the tree, caged and sent to the countryside and a “cat police would handle (eat) them”, according to the Sichuan Online.
