Skinned Alive: Stop the Slaughter, Stop the Cruelty

In some of China's many fur farms, animals are brutally skinned alive in order to get a "cleaner cut". Please read this article and help bring this to an end NOW.

The Story

As you sit reading this, hundreds of animals in China are being SKINNED ALIVE for their fur. Apparently this disgusting act of cruelty allows for a “better cut” when removing the skin, although many of the animals have their heads crushed or are beaten into a state of semi-consciousness in order to stop their desperate struggles; shockingly this is achieved by either, holding the animal by the tail and slamming them headfirst into the ground, or beating them with metal poles.

Think that’s it? Oh, no! After having their skin removed the animals are all piled up, but many of them are still alive. Yep, that’s right! Many of the animals can live for up to 10 minutes after being skinned, still able to move and blink among the bodies of their predecessors.

And if you assume that the cruelty ends there, you’d be sadly mistaken. Throughout their damned lives, the animals are kept in tiny, unsheltered cages, left open to the elements at all times and with no privacy for acts such as birthing, which often results in the mother killing her litter. Many of the creatures are driven to literal insanity and disease spreads uncontrollably.

The link below will take you to the official website against these acts. It includes a full account of the murders and a video of the acts taking place, for anyone brave enough to watch. I thought i was but after just 30 seconds i was a gasping, sobbing wreck in front of my computer. This has to end. Please help stop this barbarity by simply reading through this webpage and giving up fur – you never know how it was obtained.

I have added this to facebook although I certainly dont "like" what is being done. My wife wrote a page some time ago too documenting the trail of cruelty - the fur scraps are often made into the shape of cats and dogs, sold to the UK and North America as toys for kids.
With her permission I also wrote this with a picture of the toys too.

I can't read this after the introduction, but I applaud you for writing it. I stopped eating meat about 18 mo ago after years of trying to reconcile by buying free range, humanely treated meat. At the end of the day I simply could not speak against animal cruelty and continue to eat my fellow animals. I am so sorry we have come to a place on earth where torture and mutilation is accepted in the name of commerce. We here in Canade still allow the clubbing of baby seals for sale in some European countries and I think China. They are killed to make little pretend baby seals that sell for a few dollars at souviner shops. We celebrate animals like lions, tigers and the like for their strength, courage and beauty and use these images to sell products while at the same time hunting them to the brink of extinction. I don't have an answer, but I have personally opted out of eating, purchasing or endorsing any more death - animal or human.
