Animal rights award for the chef who said no
Beijing - A Chinese chef fired 12 times for refusing to cook wild animals has been awarded the honorary title "Green Chef Protecting Wildlife" by the China Wildlife Conservation Association.

Thirty-two-year-old Zhang Xingguo's defiance has also seen him resign 20 times from cooking jobs, the Xinhua news agency said on Thursday.

He claims to have converted more than 700 chefs who now refuse to cook the wild animals that regularly grace dinner tables in a country that believes they are good for health.
