Shocking footage has emerged of more than 10 people forced to crawl on all fours in public last week in a Chinese city.
The group of people, all employees of one company, were reportedly being punished by their boss because they hadn't hit their sales targets. Local media say that management wanted them to be more motivated.
The incident was filmed in Baishan City, northern China's Jilin province on April 2, Huanqiu, affiliated with the People's Daily Online reports.
According to Chinese media, the company did not meet their sales targets.
On April 7, the company spoke out about the video. The company's spokesman confirmed that they trade car and financial loans.
The spokesman said that as the company had not met the sales target, they asked the manager to crawl on his knees to motivate him.
However, all of the staff allegedly volunteered to follow their manager and do the exercise.
The company says that the group crawled nearly 700 feet.

Any boss that treated me like that would lose most of his teeth and much of his jaw bone.
