A woman caused outrage after someone posted photos of her walking her grandson like a dog.
The woman in China, was seen walking the barefoot boy with a lock and chain attached to his leg.
The woman was seen begging for food in a small village in the province of Zhejiang, Shanghai.
With the help of the villagers, police found the boy and his grandmother, in a dark and damp building. He was chained to the wall.
The chain was only several meters long allowing him to move around, but not too far.
Police found that he was in the care of his 70-year-old grandmother.
The grandmother told police that she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis and asthma, and is forced to walk with the help of crutches, leaving her unable to properly care for her grandson.
When the boy was 1-year-old he fell from his bed and suffered a severe brain injury. Since then, his behavior has become extremely violent and difficult to control.
Sadly, his mother died from cancer a few years ago, and his dad has recurring mental disabilities.
“It kills me to put him on a chain, but due to his mental state, which could cause him to hurt himself or other people, it’s better this way,” the grandmother said.
Hopefully, the family will get the help they desperately need.
