>Postgraduate candidate rejected by Nanjing University after allegedly torturing cats caught in public opinion after attempting to transfer to Lanzhou University



A candidate who was rejected by Nanjing University supposedly for torturing cats was once again caught in a storm of public opinion and sparked heated discussion after he recently applied for a transfer to Lanzhou University.


Many netizens left messages on the official Weibo account of Lanzhou University to suggest that the university maintain appropriate standards for postgraduate enrollment, with many saying that candidates with moral issues should not be enrolled in any course.


The candidate, surnamed Xu, had scored the highest among all the candidates in the written exams for the professional courses of the major which he applied for at Nanjing University. However, he failed to pass the interview component of the postgraduate entrance exam after netizens exposed online that he had allegedly engaged in torturing cats.


Before the exam results were announced, several netizens filed complaints to the university that Xu had serious character issues and had filmed himself torturing cats at his university dormitory at the School of Civil Engineering of Southeast University where he finished his undergraduate studies. Netizens said that he also joined an online group who abuse cats for fun.


A faculty member of Nanjing University said on April 3 that Xu failed the second-round exam, noting that the university applies comprehensive criteria when it comes to enrollment and Xu’s cat-abusing behavior could also have some impact on the university’s assessment.
