1
The red panda turned up at the home of a Chinese family in the suburbs of Leshan, a city located in southwest China's Sichuan Province, last week. "We were having a meal outside our home and saw it climbing down the slope toward us. We approached it slowly, leaving the door of our house open, and then the red panda suddenly rushed inside," said the homeowner.

NYT: Stephon Marbury Finding Success and Serenity in China

2
Marbury is in a great space: his own driver, an apartment in Beijing in the equivalent of the Wall Street district and a team that could help him win his first pro basketball championship. "I never thought in my life that I’d end up going to China and wanting to spend the rest of my life here," he said. Marbury also writes a weekly newspaper column in China Daily.

"It’s beautiful when you can tell your own story," he said. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/05/sports/basketball/stephon-marbury-finding-success-and-serenity-in-china.html?pagewanted=print

But dyeing your pets to look like other wild animals is a more recent development. http://www.globalpost.com/dispatches/globalpost-blogs/the-rice-bowl/china-panda-pet-culture-dog-tiger-economy
