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

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.
