Historical Victory of Mars’s Case






Mars, the golden retriever who died mysteriously in Beijing Airport while with China Southern Airline, has finally gotten compensation.

Today on the 26th of July 2013, almost a year after her death, the court case and Mars’ loving owner Zhao Nan, finally wins. Although with very little compensation actually to be paid, this is a new milestone for Chinese animal protection, and is yet another step towards a future of peace and love to all animals in China. This is the first time in Chinese history that the law and court has acknowledged the level of the bond between a pet and their owner; if our pet is taken from us, our hearts will be broken. Out of it all, this is the greatest reward that could have come out of this lawsuit against the airline. There are more than 20000 forwarded and more than 3500 comments from Weibo hours after this historical victory.







This is the first case involving a pet’s death on an airline that was victorious, and could not have happened without the efforts of Mars’ owner and her layer, who fought tirelessly against the large company airline for the sad death of Mars. Support from the media and many others from social networks like Weibo from around the world also brought about this beautiful beginning.
