WARNING CALMING CONTENT. Officials in Shanghai, China, have rounded up and killed pets of residents who have tested positive for Covid, while other people are being held in “quarantine camps” where lights are kept on 24 hours a day
Terrifying videos have emerged of giant green garbage bags filled with cats and dogs as Chinese officials continue to monitor the world’s tightest lockdown.
The horrifying clip shows giant garbage bags lying on the side of the sidewalk while live cats roam inside.
The video was first shared on Twitter, accompanied by the caption: “26 million people in lockdown in Shanghai.
“People are committing suicide from their balconies and pets of people who have tested positive for #Covid are being collected to be killed and slaughtered in #Shanghai / #China. This is pure evil!”
Another clip released last week showed a healthcare worker beating a corgi to death after its owner tested positive for Covid.
Residents of Shanghai, China’s largest city of 26 million people, have been living under a draconian lockdown for over a month.
Hungry residents have been robbing grocery stores, and drones have been spotted flying over skyscrapers, telling residents to “control their soul’s desire for freedom,” according to the South China Morning Post.
Anyone who tests positive for Covid will be forced to live in a cramped mass quarantine center for an indefinite period.
Strict measures inside the center include bizarre rules like lights on 24 hours a day, seven days a week and no showers.

One Ukrainian expat, Jane Polbotko, 30, told The Wall Street Journal she hadn’t seen darkness in nearly three weeks.
She was pressured into staying at a facility in Shanghai, among thousands others, describing it as a “Covid prison”.
Chinese authorities have justified the brutal containment measures as controlling the Omicron cases spreading across the city.
But it appears pets are a concern of officials, with reports of cats and dogs being killed by Covid workers.
And the extermination of the animals is seriously damaging the mental health of some owners, who have been urged to take their own lives, it has been reported.

Pets of people who contract the virus are also reportedly being killed by Covid workers amid fears they could spread the deadly virus.
According to NationalWorld, viral footage of people in Shanghai shows a corgi chasing a van with its owners after they tested positive and were taken to a quarantine camp.
The owner wrote in an online group: “In the end I thought I could skip it [the pet] running around outside to become a stray, at least it wouldn’t starve.”
But later a Covid prevention worker reportedly hit the dog three times with a spade, killing it.
Apparently, hiding the animals isn’t an option either, as lockdown personnel will return to their homes to sterilize them and find them.
