Pet owner receives backlash after head-turning video of dog walker surfaces
A man whose fluffy, panda-like dog turned his head on a street in China was criticized after it was revealed that he had dyed the Chow-Chow's fur to make it look like one of the beloved black and white bears.
A video from June 6 shows a nameless woman who, according to Newsflare, leads a man named Yang Yan’s dog named Mei Niu (or “pretty girl”) through the southern Chinese city of Lechan.
After the video went online, it sparked a heated debate over whether or not the animal owner's actions were cruelty to animals.
Yang Yan later clarified that he dyed the Chow Chow's fur with vegetable dye and claimed that it was harmless to the animal.

In 2019, an animal café called "Cute Pet Games" in Chengdu, China, agreed to stop coloring its six resident chow chows to look like pandas - the creatures the city is famous for - after going online - had caused outrage, Shaighaiist previously reported.
In a statement, PETA Asia's press spokesman Keith Guo condemned the café's actions.
"Hair coloring may be fashionable, but only for people who willingly do it," said Guo. “The use of dyes in animals, fur, skin, nose and eyes always carries risks. Animals shouldn't be a painting tool. "
