Yaozu Wang, born in a village of Sichuan. In 2011, the price of a Tibetan mastiff soared to 1.8 million RMB. Yaozu sold his house in his village and invested all the money in the business of Tibetan mastiff.
In 2019, the price of a Tibetan mastiff fell to 80,000 RMB. His village was assigned as an economic development area. The house price in the village increased tenfold. Yaozu became the best joke in the village and threw himself into the Lancang River.
