Pig Worships In Front of Temple

On the Fourth day of the Chinese New Year of the Sheep, a pig stole the show in front of a temple in Tatou village, Yongjia Bridge Town, Wenzhou province, clearly doing the gesture of worshiping by kneeling. Onlookers were moved by its gesture, chanting a buddhist mantra for the pig. Onlookers presumed that the pig hoped to gain a human body in the next life, so he or she could obtain the Buddhist teachings.

A video of the pig worshipping, was uploaded by a Chinese blogger the next day and attracted 7.7million viewers in the first 24 hours.

Some people tried to move the pig away, but the pig did not want to leave the temple, and kept kneeling. So monks in the temple came out and conducted a Buddhist ceremony for the pig, praying for a better after-life.

After the monks completed the ceremony for the pig, the pig left.


2 days later, the owner of the pig, Mr Huang alerted the media that it was one of his three pigs that ran away on Sunday morning, He found the three pigs later in the day, and sent them to the abbattoir that evening! He was so surprised and regretted his action after watching the TV news....but was too late. Mr Huang said that he would not have sent it to be killed if he knew what had happened in front of temple.

But some people said that the pig might be better off now as its wish maybe fulfilled.?

This leads to an old news report in China in 1923.

More Virulent H7N9 in 2014? PDF Print E-mail
Real China
China Uncensored   

A more virulent form of H7N9 bird flu in China in 2014 is probable as the virus can now be spread between humans and animals through contact.

According to the Health Department of Zhejiang province, in January 2014, there have been 46 cases confirmed as H7N9, including 12 deaths and 36 still in hospital.

When a  family of 3 all became infected, it confirmed that the virus appeared to be passed by human contact.

H7N9 virus has been spread through human to human contact in Zhejiang province since July 2013. The Mayor of Hangzhou, a picturesque town in Zhejiang, Mr. Zhang Hongming, told media that they are planning to permanently close the live stock trade market and to let only frozen chickens and ducks be sold in supermarkets. (Supposedly the frozen birds have been inspected for the virus?)

In Shanghai, in January, 8 people contracted the H7N9 virus, with 4 deaths confirmed. On 18th January, a 31 year old male doctor in a Shanghai hospital, who had treated patients with H7N9 infection, died only 2 days after flu like symptoms appeared. He had taken medicine after the flu symptoms appeared, and kept working. The next day he felt tightness in his chest and shortness of breath, and on the 17th, of January was admitted to intensive care, but died the same evening.

In Guangdong province, there have been 20 new cases in January 2014, and 4 deaths.

In Hong Kong, 11 people have been confirmed as having contracted H7N9, with 9 deaths this month. Hong Kong authorities have issued a ban on selling live chickens for 28 days. Personnel involved in delivery and transport of live bird have to undergo thorough medical checks.

Chinese media have reported 96 new cases of H7N9 in January 2014.

Taiwan issued a yellow warning in January about H7N9, to travelers to China.

The H7N9 virus developed from the H1N1 virus, has a very short incubation period and there is no effective treatment at present, according to a publication of the Chinese National Health Department, issued on 26th January 2014.

The Chinese communist regime is well known for not admitting to, or publishing accurate data, on anything that affects China's "image", so it is a concern for other countries that the virus may spread quickly due to ineffective containment in China.

Who are the guinea pigs?
