6.9.16 - Eight Loyal Stray Dogs Guard the Body of the Woman Who Loved Them1

 

It’s a sad day when humans have so little regard for one another that they’ll just pass by the body of a woman who’s died, leaving her in the street to rot.  But dogs are on a higher plane than humans.  These eight dogs faithfully surrounded her and held vigil for several hours.

There are conflicting reports of the woman’s age; the Daily Mail says she was elderly, but a translation of a Chinese news source calls her a “young woman aged 15.”  Nevertheless, she was riding her bicycle near the Jiangxi Institute of Engineering in southeast China with her adopted dogs in tow when she suddenly collapsed and died on the spot.

Police and paramedics arrived, but when they realized she was dead and there was no way to revive her, they departed, leaving her body where it was.  She was not moved until much later that night.

­She used ride her bike to collect bottles and discarded items to sell to survive, and adopted the street dogs over the years.  Her perturbed dogs gathered around her from 4 am until 10 am, seemingly the only souls in the world to care about her life or death.

Hopefully someone, or the community, will step in and care for these poor dogs now that they are without the only person in the world who cared about them.

  1. So now we can continue to have our school children informed as to how awful our society is and how superior other societies are; but at least we pick up people who have died in the street. Where are those “superior collective values” when you need them?

      • Dogs are not treated better than humans in China. They eat dogs! Have not heard of them eating humans. Does seem that the community would have a law about burying dead bodies though.

      • Whatever entity brought about our creation has not looked back since then. It does not spend time judging or blessing. It could care less about our daily lives and has never communicated with any inhabitant of our earth whether past or present. Your bible is nothing but a collection of myths and legends. It does contain some good life advice but anything claiming to be the “word of god”, “what god wants”, or “god’s plan” is BS written by men for the purpose of bending others to their will.

        • God will send strong delusion to them that believe the lie . Men who are neither thankful or like to retain God in there knowledge. Why do they not like to retain God in there knowledge ? Because they don’t want to answer to a holy God because they have pleasure in unrighteousness. They want to make themselves the God . They can’t face the fact that there is a creator that made them from the dust of the earth. We will see whether God”s Holy Scriptures are a myth , maybe for you on the judgement day you will have to answer to that Holy God that is a myth . But He loved you enough to die for you have you ever meditated on that ? Or is that to far below your wisdom and knowledge? He will bring the wisdom of this world to nothing .

      • You have never heard about the Yulin festival where they kill and eat thousands of dogs, including stolen pets? The Chinese have no regard for ANY life.

    • Please do not take offense, but I don’t really think you understand what you are talking about.

      I grew up in Chicago, In 1995, the population of the US was nearly 300 million. Chicago experienced a heat wave that summer which killed over 700 people within a few weeks. Some of these people were left where they were found for over a week. The infrastructure at the time dictated that semi truck freezers needed to be brought in to bridge the lack of room at the morgue. It seems now, as if this “temporary solution” has now become the GO-TO fix in Chicago as these trucks are now permanent staples.

      Now lets just compare the population of China, which is well over 1,375,000,000 as in 1 billion, three hundred and seventy five million. Now lets just imagine how Chicago would have handled the summer of 1995 with just double it’s normal inhabitants. Are you getting the picture yet?

      Chinese people do not leave their dead in the streets out of disrespect or a lack of compassion, if it happens, it is due to a lack of services. Services which are very lacking in this country are horribly outnumbered by the more than 10x population of China.

      We shouldn’t be so judgemental when we think of other countries and other cultures. When I read your statement, I knew instantly that you have NEVER even been to Asia. Because had you traveled there, you would have understood what I am talking about.

      But don’t worry, you can just click away and get back to your Vente’ Frap while you watch Kardashians on that Iphone that these people made for you. Maybe later you could find more issues to complain about , to which you are completely ignorant.

      Hope you feel more important now that you’ve set us all straight in your pathetic attempt to gain attention for yourself from this poor womans death. Hope you feel special.

      • I’m from Asia and I worked in China for long years. This is not about the facility. You don’t need an ambulance to show you care for somebody else’s life.
        Btw, other countries have worse situation than they do, but they sure responded well when needed.

      • I’m from Asia and I’m working in China for quite long years now so I pretty much know about it.

        First, you don’t need facilities to show care to someone else’s life.
        2nd, other countries are obviously poorer in facilities, but they responded well when needed. Things like these has been a trademark for China.
        Seriously, this inhumane behavior is one of my worries here.

      • Lack of services? So two of the ” 1 billion, three hundred and seventy five million” people that you refer to couldn’t have at least assisted and got her out of the street? You’re the moron who videos the violence going on rather than trying to assist. We get it.

      • I love how you are calling the author out for being judgmental, when your very next paragraph reeks of judgement. “…you can just click away and get back to your Vente’ Frap while you watch Kardashians on that Iphone that these people made for you”??? Pot, meet kettle.

      • You say no offense, and then proceed to hurl insults at other posters? The ignorant one here is you. There is absolutely no reason to leave a woman lying dead in the street. They moved her hours later, why? Did the place they took her not exist 10 hours prior?
        This is an inhumane, despicable act, so no ‘offense’ to you, but you are an imbecile.

      • Chicago is not China and China is not Chicago !
        I dont want to offend you either because just maybe you are a Nice but, extremely Naive individual !
        I have lived in China for years and it would not surprise me for an instant that common disregard and disrespect is why this woman lay Dead in the street or Lack of Money to pay for the storage of her body !
        You don’t have a clue of how China ticks from one day to the next and in many cases the value of a Human life isnt worth much more than 15,000 USD (and thats if you work for a company that pays out insurable Death Benefits)
        Likely the only thing people would have cared about throughout the day while she lay there Dead in the street was how to drive around her in a hurry and grab a quick photo to post on Wechat or QQ !

        • Well, just like any other thing, we shouldn’t judge something based on one picture. How do we know for sure someone didn’t stop to try to help her, but then realized she was dead. What do you rather a stranger do? Move a dead body somewhere else? I’m pretty sure most these rude comments about the Chinese already had some sort of hatred towards the Chinese to think the worse.

      • Actually I have BEEN to China and have lived in India. I PERSONALLY have witnesed accident victims laying on the street and no one bothering to to even look at them. That was the biggest culture shock i had when i went there that there was little to no regard for life. There was this one incident where a a person was struck by a train and his legs were severed, but he was still alive on the tracks begging people to help him, hundreds just stood there, while he was still on the tracks, they all WATCHED another speeding train come and run over him again. Now when I travel to countries like Sweden, Norway, Denmark or Iceland it’s the opposite. When there are too many people it effects the way people value life. This is a phenomen of overpopulation.

      • Holy hell, sanctimonious jerks like you make me sick. Get off your damn soapbox and learn to read. The article said that there was an ambulance there and that it just left the body there. So there, there were your “facilities” or whatever to handle the girls body. They just chose not to and to left her dead in the street. Stop criticizing everyone for having an opinion different from your own hippy self righteous ones and shut your mouth. No one cares what you have to say. Ugghh!

      • Very Well Said … People assume they know everything about everything, the ignorance of it is just amazing. I am sorry this woman was left behind for whatever might be the reason. It is truly unfortunate.

      • The paramedic arrived and when they knew that the girl was dead, they just left it, as is. These people are less humane than a dog.

      • Its not about facility issue, its about being kind to another human. Picture says it all. A respectful act would be to put a body on a clean place and cover it until help arrives. Animals have more compassion than most humans…..

    • The Chinese are without a moral code. Everything they do suggests this repeatedly. Horrible place and horrible people especially in the large cities.

      • They have a moral code. It is the communist party and all that stands for. The United States is on its way there now. Eliminating all conservative, judgmental ideas and their “out dated” way of thinking is the first step. Notice the trend?

  2. My question is….How does a young, in shape woman of 15 years suddenly Fall OFF HER BICYCLE & DIE!!!!(?)!!!!!!!!!!!

    Reply
    • The same way a 15 year old basketball player collapses on the court and dies. Also, there was not a definitive answer regarding her age.

    • She was probably born with a brain aneurism which is unusual in the general public but it’s a common cause of sudden death in otherwise young & previously healthy people. An aneurism is pretty much like a sort of saggy bag that forms in a blood vessel. It could remain tiny and the person could live a long life without ever discovering he/she had it or at any random moment the sack explodes causing massive bleeding in the brain and the person dies rather quickly. They had a medical case like this in an episode of the Dr. House tv show.

      Another plausible cause could be an aorta aneurism which is a similar sack beneath the aorta. It’s what caused the sudden death of beloved american actor John Ritter several years ago.

  3. In China human flesh has been eaten, at different times, by millions of consumers. There was a great famine in the 1930s in which thousands upon thousands of people were eaten. Naturally, the Chinese and Koreans eat dogs and cats.
