NewsChina - - NETIZEN W@TCH -

Li Li, a pro­fes­sor of tra­di­tional Chi­nese stud­ies in Chengdu, Sichuan Prov­ince, has gained fame on­line for turn­ing his back­yard into a zoo where he keeps nearly 200 species of an­i­mals, some of which are rare or en­dan­gered, in­clud­ing por­cu­pines, os­triches and civets.

Most were res­cued from restau­rants and un­der­ground mar­kets. Li told me­dia that he has stud­ied hard to learn about var­i­ous an­i­mals’ habits and he also re­ceived much guid­ance from the lo­cal forestry depart­ment. Ne­ti­zens spoke highly of Li’s benev­o­lence and said that they ad­mired his life.
