Just read about this on CNN. One of the comments on the page was this: 'Gosh, now that they know it's a dog,....hope they don't eat it.' I hope not.!! Thanks, Cher for this.

When I saw the headline I thought the same, I hope they don't get angry with him and eat him! My best wishes to the dog.

Thanks Cher.

I have to laugh, who did they think they were fooling. I too hope the dog is safe, thanks for the update, Cher.

I'm glad they are closed. What they were trying to do was ridiculous and to be honest I was concerned how they were/would treat the animals. Someone that does something so odd and bizarre seems desperate to me.

Thanks for the update.

I pity all the animals in China. More than this zoo needs to be "rectified".

This was a no-brainer. Odd, how a country so brilliant with commandeering capitalist countries' economics can do such a stupid thing!
