A resident of Shenzhen's Luohu district decided to use a high-powered loudspeaker to blast animal calls, as retaliation for the noise he reportedly suffered from a nearby animal hospital.
The man, surnamed Lin, said he could not stand the din from the animals on the ground floor of the hospital.
His neighbors decided to seek police help for all the noise generated by his stunt.
After mediation, both Lin and the animal hospital agreed to compromise - he promised to stop playing his loudspeaker while the animal hospital would soundproof its facilities.
