[] The Story Of The Unimaginable Cruelty Behind China's Fur Industry!


The Story Of The Unimaginable Cruelty Behind China's Fur Industry!

Before they are skinned, animals are pulled out of cages, thrown on the ground and bludgeoned to death. When the workers begin to cut the skin and the fur from the animal's limb, it kicks and writhes, gasping its final breaths before the worker stomps on the necks and the head of the animal. At least that's what happens to the animals who don't allow a clean cut to the workers. We are talking foxes, minks, rabbits, wolves, cats, dogs, basically, any animal whose fur will be of any value to the buyer.

They are now more valuable than they ever were.

Surrendered to fate, helpless mother animals, driven crazy from the rough handling in the incredibly small cages, have nowhere to hide while giving birth. They often end up killing their babies after delivering litters. Diseases and injuries everywhere, some even suffer anxiety-induced psychosis living in the cages and end up chewing on their own limbs and throwing themselves against the cage bars.


China is the world's largest exporter of fur. It accounts for more than half of the fur garments being imported into the United States. There are practically no regulations for handling of animals in these fur farms in China. There are also absolutely no penalties for the mental and physical abuse the fur animals are put through.


What undercover investigators from the Swiss Animal Protection/ EAST International found is hard to comprehend. Many animals are still struggling to stay alive when the workers flip them over on their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails before skinning them. Dead or alive.

When their fur is finally peeled off, their bloody, hairless bodies are thrown onto a pile of many others rotting away. Some unfortunate ones, who are still alive after their skinning, breathe their final 5-10 minutes in agony. One of the investigators even recalls a raccoon in a heap of carcasses just finding enough strength to lift its bloodied head before breathing its last. Cats and dogs bludgeoned and hung by wire nooses bleed to their death in the full public's view at the animal market in China. Most of them not even strays. Many still with collars on are stolen from their loved ones to be made into a fur coat for the West. Their fur will be used for trinkets.


This fur is very often mislabelled as fur from other species to get a green light from regulatory bodies to be sent across the globe. All to be sold to unsuspecting customers in retail stores. Most of the cat or dog fur is mislabelled. If you're buying fur, there's no way to tell whose skin you're wearing. The only way you can make a difference and stop this unimaginable cruelty is by not wearing fur. Boycott fur, it comes at a cost.
