    Yes, a remarkable woman. At this so-called "festival", the standards of slaughter are not controlled and dogs are sometimes boiled alive, whilst still conscious. Some of the dogs slaughtered are family pets which have been collected illegally. There is a lot on the net about it. This lady has worked tirelessly to try to save these poor dogs.

    There is another benefit to all her tireless work. It has helped publicise the annual dog slaughter and drawn worldwide protests - and also within China itself.
