These photos were shared on Weibo, a Chinese micro-blogging platform. A rat was caught ‘stealing’ rice at a convenience store and the staff decided to disgrace it after it was caught.
The uploader who confirmed the incident actually happened, said the rat was caught at a shop in Zhuhai city, Guangdong Province, which was owned by his friend.
In the first picture, a note written by the staff of the store was attached to the rat. It read: ‘Huh, is this the best you could do? Even if you beat me to death, I would not admit that the rice at your home had been stolen by me.’
In the second picture, the rat had a different note attached to its body, which read: ‘I dare not do it again!’
