Sorry!  The picture does not exist!

A dog owner was forced to pay over a hundred thousand RMB in compensation after an older woman tripped and fell after the dog made her nervous in the park.

Mrs. Xie, 66 was walking in a park in Chengdu when a puppy ran up to her. The puppy was off the leash and ran up to the older woman. She was scared and started shaking her keys at the dog. She fell over and landed on her back. Ms. Lei, the dog owner, paid Mrs. Xie 50,000 RMB in compensation. Later, Mrs. Xie took Ms. Lei to court.  

Chengdu Business Daily reported that the court ruled that Ms. Lei should bear all liability for the accident because she did not have her pet on a leash. Mrs. Lei was ordered to pay the full cost of Mrs. Xie’s medical bills. She paid 85,800 RMB more, for a total payout of almost 140,000 RMB.

According to a Chengdu law implemented in 2010, dog owners will bear full liability for damages if they do not take full safety measures to control their animals.

So the old woman didn't like the dog so harrassed it until it became stressed and tried warning the woman by barking. The old lady then tripped up and won the lottery. The dog owner should be punished for not having a dog on a lead but teqching people to extort others is not the way of correcting behaviour.

Great! Can I have compensation too when Chinese people intensely stare at me or shout 'hello!!!' in my back? Because it's extremely stressful and obviously impacts my mental health in the long run.

Why did the old lady come so close to the dog? its a lottery for the old lady. Lady might be rich so that she could afford to pay 140,000 RMB, even Dog wont have costed that much to that lady.

where in the story does it say a foriegner was involved? seems to me it was 2 Chinese unless Im missing something. Did you read the article wrong, or maybe you cant read so well b/c you arent a native English speaker/reader.

Nothing better than for the courts to rule in the old womans favor. more frivolous lawsuits will now rush into the courts like an avalanche. good grief.

If you, as a foreigner, find yourself in a similar situation: 1) Dont claim responsibility, and for God's sake dont pay any money to anyone. 2)By all means, Do NOT go to the hospital with the "victim". 3)If you feel you will be scapegoated, pack up your valuables and such and leave the country immediately !

5000 years of history and still afraid of dogs? No dogs in Chinese history?
