What an idiot. Karma kicked in really quick in this case.

The Express – A DOG meat vendor has died after shooting HIMSELF with a poisoned dart he had prepared to slay defenceless puppies.

The Chinese man reportedly died after the toxic arrow struck him in the leg during a demonstration on how to handle a deadly crossbow used to execute canines.

The victim had been showing other members of his meat-selling gang how to shoot and kill dogs for meat when the fatal accident occurred.

He was rushed to hospital but died on the way, according to reports in China.

Five other members of the same gang later confessed to killing more than 1,000 dogs and were arrested.
