It's China, what do you expect from soulless beings.
And when they attack us, they will have even less mercy.

Not "Skinned Alive"

If you were that size (small as a racoon) and something 20 times bigger than you smashed your skull with an iron bar bigger than your leg, full force... you would be dead instantly, you probably wouldn't even feel it, it'd be like "WHACK" Lights out.

ALL of that wiggling, and screeching and whatnot is nerves, they are dead don't you worry. Have you ever cut the head of a chicken? Don't let go, they are fully dead but you'll need to run after them.

Truth is, it's sick to see. Truth is, if it's not done out of necessity, it is cruel. But this is nothing, absolutely nothing compared to other things... and least they have the decency to smash their skulls before skinning them. If you know what they did to Dolphins, without even killing them, you'd think this is pretty humane.

Animals die needlessly all the time, don't loose your mind over it, there's nothing none of you can do about it.

Do you think these workers even look at them as animals? No they are trained (like a farmer) to look at it as product, they aren't heartless, they may even dislike their job, but someone needs to make money to put food on the table.

I think the way they are raised is far crueler than their death.

Bullsh*t. Those wriggling animals are alive. And please tell me that you didn't watch the entire video, because if you had I would be really dissapointed to know that you thought that the poor and completely skinned raccoon type animal at the end was dead...even though it is clearly breathing while it turns it's head to look around...blinking..and in obvious pain.

Seriously, please tell me you didn't watch it all of the way through.

well the other night, I watched a doco on MAINSTREAM television and it blew the whistle on this bastard practice and everyone has been talking about it for days...

and I felt angry cos so many people did not believe it when I put up the info...

well, all the Aussies that saw the real footage on their tv box believe it now!

and the laws here are going to be ammended to stop this deceptive practice!

If people cannot tell the difference between fake fur and real even by looking at it then I despair.

I admit to being a massive hypocrite though. Whilst I have no concern what sweatshop some clothing might have come from I have always gone out of my way to avoid China's fur trade. Why though? Well I see no reason to go there. I have no need of a full length coat Cruella De Ville would be proud of thanks to my country's still rather insipid climate. I do however, still wear fur...

Over the years I have gained a small collection of stoles, shoulder capes & muffs. Obviously they gain a bit of attention, never negative - people are simply inquisitive about them. They are all antiques, well worn, well kept and have in death seen out far more generations of people than they could ever hope to in life. The most stroked and coo'd over by strangers being a full fox pelt who met his untimely demise sometime between 1890 and the 1940's.

I would much rather see such things well kept and passed on than end up in the bin.

sure, but there must be a humane way of killing any animal and correct labellling so people can make an informed choice.

I have 4 fake fur cushions on my couch and they came from china and I look at them and worry.

what if they aren't fake?

anyway, they had some fur specialist analyse garments that were labelled 'fake fur' - they turned out to be 'racoon dog' from china.

Have you washed them yet? As a general rule fake fur goes rubbish and bobbly like putting teddies through the washer. Plus a bloody good sniff might give you a clue too.
My advice - Take a cushion to a good local haberdashers that stocks good quality fake fur in bulk and have a feel. If the cushions are real fur, you'll definitely know by the comparison and know then to avoid it.

Why is it so hard to kill the animal before skinning? If you have no compassion for it, wouldn't it just be easier to give it a real quick whack on the head? I eat meat, have leather car seats, leather belts, leather shoes, leather holsters and my girlfriend wears fur coats often.

I don't have a problem killing or eating an animal, but I do take issue with them suffering needlessly. I would have NO PROBLEM paying an extra $1 for every animal killed with a bullet HUMANELY to continue living my lifestyle. Hell companies could easily exploit emotions here and MAKE money. Buy a belt for one dollar more and know the cow was killed humanely... How many belts per cow? Profit. Girlfriends fur coats... no idea, probably an extra $40-50 bucks (tack on an extra 5 for fun) not a big deal when you're spending $3,000 (at least

Hell they don't even need bullets. We all saw No Country For Old Men.

Well I watched a whole 5 seconds of this brutality, almost threw up, then proceeded to die a little inside. Again. There are only so many of these stories one can hear of before losing all faith in humanity and begging for the wrath of God to be poured out upon this broken, dying world bringing an end to this madness. Judgment will happen, that is my only reconciliation. I am as deserving as the next.

At the very least, I hope people read this and boycott this psychotic industry.

The scope of man's depravity is frighteningly broad.

You do realize that the only reason you and everyone you love are alive today is because people have been slaughtering animals for pelts and food forever right?

I guess I don't know anyone who doesn't know that?

What I call into question is that this is done in the name of fashion. Necessary for our survival? I think not. It's excessive, indulgent, and barbaric.

I also abhor the method of slaughter. How is this legal? How do these people sleep at night? How have they NOT come up with a more expedient, humane method of slaughter? Come on!

It's the difference between dominion/good stewardship and brutal, wasteful, unnecessary exploitation.

I do eat meat, use animal products, and I dont have much of a moral problem with it. What I DO have a really big moral problem with is animal abuse. This is not an issue of vegetarianism vs. meat eaters, make no mistake. It is an issue of normal human beings vs. sick psychopaths.

No, we should focus on both.
