Owners Take Pets To Fortune Tellers

(WCCO) Taipei, Taiwan In Taiwan, people are taking their pets to fortune tellers to find out what is in store for their furry friends.

A group of Chinese Yi Jin believers practiced fortune-telling for pets in Taipei, Taiwan on Sunday.

Dogs, cats and even rabbits attended the future-forecasting. Some people brought pictures of their dead dogs to find out if their pet was having a good life in the underworld.

Using a bamboo stick, fortune tellers tap a Chinese compass in order to tap into signals from the universe.

Yang Huei-chun, a fortune teller, claimed he could answer questions raised by pets' owners through the tapping.

The fortune-telling is part of a celebration to welcome in the Chinese New Year of the Dog. According to the lunar calendar, this year's Chinese New Year falls on Jan. 29.
