February 27, 2015: Chinese women feed 1300 stray dogs



The excellent My Modern Metropolis highlights this story.

Quote:
Five elderly Chinese women from Weinan, Shaanxi Province chose to spend the holiday taking care of over 1,300 stray dogs, just as they do every day. Six years ago, Wang Yanfang established a dog asylum as a way to save strays from the pound, where they could be euthanized. Since then, the 60-year-old and four other volunteers—all in their 60s and 70s—have gotten up at 4AM every morning so they can prepare 400 kilograms of food for the hungry pups. The shelter, which is supported solely by donations, makes sure that these animals are fed, cared for, and even groomed regularly.


So the Chinese have discovered the "no-kill shelter"... next they have to discover "rescue"... in any case, it's a better situation for the dogs than it used to be in China, where they have generally taken care of stray dog populations by simply killing them.

Let me blow some of the space dust off that title.
it doesn't say "Chinese women feed 1300 stray dogs," it says "Chinese women feed 1300 stray dogs to tourists."

She's a rancher, not a crazy dog lady.



Gravdigr  Friday Feb 27 02:14 PM

She looks pretty well-fed for an old Chinese lady.

I'm just sayin'...

Feeds them 400kg (880 lbs) of what? I can't figure out what that is.
And 880 lbs (400 kg) of food produces how much dog poop?



Undertoad  Friday Feb 27 05:33 PM

Aaaand they had better be neutered or there are going to be 13000 stray dogs soon.

They could create a law that each bitch can only have one puppy...


suggestions:

1. Springer Roll
2. Pug Foo Yung
3. General Shitzu's chicken
4. Pekinese Duck
5. Chihuhua Mein

or 5. Chow Chow Mein

Monster, your present employer might not appreciate your culinary suggestions fearing they might be linked to his store by an unscrupulous competitor.

I can't imagine the mayhem caused by broadcasting the wontons or whatever to that hoard, where they are well mixed into the aforementioned poo.
I think the ranching aspect comes before any altruism.
