See the Real Face of the Fur Industry

15 Apr

From PETA:

Millions of individual animals, including more than 2 million cats and hundreds of thousands of dogs, will be skinned for their fur in China this year alone.

For a few of these animals, death will come swiftly from a knife slash across the throat. For many others, their fate is to be skinned alive.

Please watch our new video exposing the abuse that animals on Chinese fur farms endure.

Many people are still unaware of the horrific animal suffering that occurs on Chinese fur farms. We need your help to spread the word about the following facts:
1. There are no regulations governing fur farms in China—farmers can house and slaughter animals however they see fit.
2. Countless animals are skinned alive on Chinese fur farms. Some of these animals remain in agony for more than 10 minutes after the skin is peeled from their bodies.
3. Fur farmers say that it is easier to get the skin off an animal who’s alive and warm than one who’s dead.
4. Products ranging from cat toys to shoes have been made from real fur and have been labeled as “faux” or synthetic to deceive the public.
Our campaign is educating people worldwide about the abuse of animals by the Chinese fur industry.

You can help our new video reach 100,000 views by watching now!

Kind regards,

    When I first saw this I was shocked! I don’t understand in this day and age why someone would wear fur. It just doesn’t make any sense
