China's shocking Dog and Cat Fur Trade

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I want to bring to your attention a terrible situation concerning the lives of cats and dogs in China.
Millions of dogs and cats in Asia are killed annually for their skins, which are exported to the UK and other countries around the world.
One fur coat requires the slaughter of up to 24 cats and as many as 12 adult dogs.
Killing methods are unimaginably cruel:
Cats are strangled or drowned, and dogs are restrained by the neck with wire snares and then slashed across the groin. Video footage shows that many are skinned while they are still conscious. Dog and cat fur is still imported into the UK and misleadingly labelled, meaning that fur-coat buyers may purchase dog and cat fur without realising it.

Please watch the following video to realize the reality of the facts
(WARNING: it contains shocking visual material) :

It's a crying shame to see this kind of prehistoric behaviour become modern everyday cruelty,
of which most people don't know or pretend it doesn't exist.

How do these people live with them selves, how do you look at an animal and just kill it because you want to make money. How do you keep your ears deaf to their cries? Why do you people in China persist in being the cruelest of cruel. All animals have rights too, they were created by God before man, does that not say something. May God have mercy on all our planet animals and may He intervene all the time. To China I just want to say, don't cry when mother nature hits you all the time, you actually deserve it. May you all rot in hell one day for the pain and suffering you inflict and still inflict on all the animals.

i was very disturbed at watching these videos and its not the first one iv watched i study animal care and its part of my course to look up on things like this. i honestly dont know how people could do this just for a job while the animals are still concious. animals dont have voices that is why more people need to speak for them and if they were going to do cruel things why dont they put them down in a dignified way..why cos it costs more money but i dont know how anybody would feel comfortable wearing something that 24 cats or 12 dogs had suffer in pain for. i would love for somebody to put the people who are skinning these animals alive to do something so painful to them so they know. its absoulty disgusting.

The Chinese are still carrying on with the killing of dogs and cats. Is there any justice in this world? ALF must visit them. Animal Lovers all around the world, I urge you to please keep on making noise, and we will be heard. We are the voices for all animals. God made them first, what does that say. I will tell you, He made them because he knwe how unconditional their love just is. These inhumane humans must suffer the worst death ever!

I would seriously love to kill the people who do this to these poor innocent animals. THIS IS SO UN-CALLED FOR. Animals have no voice and cannot speak for themselves. I agree with you Cheryl, I hope you all rot in hell!

Why doesn't the United States Government do more than just investigate. We should go over to not just China, but other countries as well, and let the animals free, arrest ALL persons involved in the slaughtering and bring them to a trial and imprison them for life and at the same time burn all the factories after having taking photographic evidence of these slaughterhouses. I used to wear fur years ago but got smart and burned my coats. I felt horrible about it.
I would like to personally get involved in stopping this atrocity as well.

OK, I love cats and have had cats all of my life but I also live in a hunters community where fur is a fact of life. Personally, I'd think that you'd treat the cats better than this if you were going to harvest their fur. This is not just cruel, but stupid. I'd think that you'd want nice, fat, sleek, well cared for beasties for their fur, not 3 or 4 to a cage with their coats and skin being damaged by the bars.

I think that a kitteh with a good life, even if that life is meant to be ended for their fur, isn't a bad thing. It's better than the feral cats here freezing and starving in sub -40C temps clinging to basement windows for a little heat.

But like most animal issues, I can't be the one to do the dirty work. I'll eat moose and deer and beef and chicken, but I can't do the killing and cleaning, just the cooking. Hell, when my cat was dying I tried to administer old style CPR. I was pretty pathetic, but I've also handed feral cats to the human society knowing that it was a death sentance.

Still... this situation seems cruel, and cruelty, regardless of purpose, is never justified. At the same time, one cannot just "blame the Chinese", after all, they have a European market and without a market there would be no reason to raise cats for fur.

I am deeply disturbed by this it's horrific!
How could they be so heartless & crule. The sad fact is no matter how much we donate, it will never stop! It's like ciggerates no matter how much ppl die from it they will never stop selling it as the money is simply to good! Abit of paper passed hand to hand is what these poor animals are dying for! We can only hope that karma does exsist and these vile disgusting human beings get there day in hell!!!
