More than 20 police officers and 40 security guards responded to subdue the dogs on Wednesday morning. Several gunshots were fired, according to local media. One dog was taken alive while the other died after being shot by police and beaten by security guards. Last week, a Tibetan mastiff was similarly shot dead by police officers in Zhengzhou , Henan province, after injuring a man and another dog. Photos: Reuters
