ANIMAL rights activists say they've tracked down the high-heeled woman
who stomped a kitten to death in an infamous video and the man who
produced the shock film in northern China's Heilongjiang Province.
Whether the pair will face any significant punishment is unclear,
however. China doesn't have effective regulations prohibiting cruelty
But while the law may be lacking, the court of public opinion is
already doling out a hefty sentence of shame.
Under pressure from local government, the video's producer, who works
as a camera operator at a TV station, apologized for his actions and
posted a self-criticism on the Internet.
A hospital nurse identified as the kitten-killing actress has
disappeared from sight, and her friends and family are worried about
what might have happened to her.
Outraged pet lovers began looking for the duo two weeks ago after a
series of videos involving attractive women stomping small animals to
death were posted on several "Crush" Websites. Some of the videos
could be downloaded for free, and others were offered for sale at 15
yuan (US$1.87) each.
