A man in Jiaxing, Zhejiang province, killed himself with a poisoned dart he had made to steal dogs from villagers.

Police received a report from local farmers on the morning of April 2 that a man was found dead on a rural road. Doctors determined the man died of cyanide poisoning. The villagers told police that they saw the man fall from a motorcycle as another man drove it away.

Police later found two bags containing two dead dogs and some darts.

During the investigation, police found the man who drove the motorcycle away and learned that the two men came from Chongqing and that morning poached dogs in the village.


Beggar's heroic deed gets fitting reward
