A man named Yan from Xiushui county, Jiangxi province, allegedly sold a stolen Tibetan mastiff worth 400,000 yuan ($65,700) for 1,000 yuan in late August because he could not afford to feed the dog, Xinhua News Agency reported on Thursday.

Yan, 34, stole the 1-meter-long, 0.6-meter-tall dog from a kennel in March, but sold the dog to another kennel on Nov 25 because of the animal's voracious appetite, the report said. Yan reportedly had spent about 20,000 yuan on the dog's food since March.

Yan was arrested after the dog's owner recognized the dog and called police.
