Man not insured for failure to use karate on dogs

Wang Zhiqing of Meishan needed stitches in his hand and a rabies jab after being attacked by wild dogs.

But when he filed a claim, the China Pacific Insurance Group said: ‘You should have fought the dogs off.

‘If you had learned a martial art like karate you would have avoided the problem.’


I was once attacked by a pack of ..okay it was only two… by two wild …okay, they were not exactly wild, but anyway… I was once attacked by two dogs while I was training for a marathon. I was running on a lonely country road. They ran up at full speed barking and snarling and just as they were trying to bite me I only survived by punching one dog in the nose and yelling like a banshee. This freaked them out enough that they turned around and ran for it.

    Great answer from the insurance company.

    What kind of communist country is that?

    Meanwhile, having grown up in the country, I’ve had multiple dog encounters like that. I once tricked a dog into running into a moving car.

    I felt like a genius.

    I can’t stop laughing for some reason. I pictured the dog bouncing off the side of a slow moving car and not getting seriously hurt. If it died I’d call you a rat bastard. Okay, I’m better. But I still think that’s the funniest thing I heard all day.

    It didn’t die, but yelped quite a bit and ran to hide.

    It was a Doberman and as you know, they can be vicious, in part because they’re stupid. I, on the other hand, can be vicious because I’m smart.
