Pian Shankong, a 40-year-old performance artist in his underwear, squats inside a dog cage in front of a dog butcher at a wholesale market in Guiyang city, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, on Dec 19, 2011, urging people to not eat dogs. The local temperature was 3 degrees Celsius. Since last year, Pian has traveled around many places in Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in Southwest China to call for the public to love the animals. At every stop during the tour, Pian got down on his knees before animals, said a dog protection volunteer.[Photo/CFP]

I asked that butcher if he ever has trouble selling dogs.
He told me that he only sells greyhounds because they go the fastest.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

He's right in doing so! But I would like to ask him this question:

Do you also "kneel" down for other animals like cows, pigs or lambs?

Let him "kneel" down for Cows and Pigs.

Cows and Pigs are also animals.

Let him ask people not to eat Cows and Pigs.
