Child abuse is a depressing problem that targets far too many youngsters in far too many sadistic ways. One of the latest trends in this category is treating your children like dogs.
The Inquisitr previously reported on a woman who posted images of her baby on a leash eating dog food on Facebook, drawing outrage from many readers. Now a man in China has one-upped her.
The unnamed individual was reportedly angry with his 10-year-old son for playing outside when he should have been studying. To teach the boy a lesson, he fastened a leash around his neck and dragged the child through streets in the Zhejiang province.
In the 45-second video below -- originally from the Daily Mail -- the father can be seen pulling his son out of a vehicle with the leash already attached.
The boy appears to resist until finally his dad jerks on the leash causing the boy to almost go limp. From there, he drags him about 300 feet before the two disappear into a shop.
It's disturbing footage, which you can see for yourself here.
