China city bans dog walking in daylight hours

A city in China has banned pet owners from walking their dogs in daylight hours.

Pet owners in Wenshan will no longer be able to take their dogs out for a walk between the hours of 7am and 10pm, and they can't take them to parks, shopping centres, sports facilities and other public spaces.

The order appears to go much further than regulations in other parts of China.

Many provinces across China have strict rules on dog ownership, a result of the belief of Communist China's founder Mao Zedong that they are a "bourgeois affectation".

A bourgeois affectation? How absurd. Why not simply regulate the use of a leash during walks.

What I thought about was the growing dog-napping trend in China. As dog ownership grows there, kidnapping them and holding them for ransom has also grown. A common threat is to sell the dogs for meat if the owners don't pay the ransom. So keeping dogs on leashes when out with them (or inside when at home) would be a smart thing to do.
