Protesting Dog Butchers, Chinese Performance Artist Strips
The Shanghaiist reports that 40-year-old performance artist Pian Shankong stripped down to his tighty-whities and scrunched himself into a dog cage to protest the butchering of dogs for food in the province of Guizhou, which lies in south-central China.
The temperature hovered around 40 degrees as he occupied the cage on wet pavement, surrounding by dog tallow and entrails. A dog carcass hung from a pole, betokening the wares of the stall.
Pian is quoted as saying: "I do urge you not to eat dog meat. We love promoting small animals, protection of human faithful friend."
