Having a fur coat inside your closet is something not anyone can afford. Wearing one makes you actually feel proud, especially when you are in the right place and the right time. But do you think you will still feel proud and happy owning this one if you only knew who paid the ultimate price for you to have this piece of fur to put on?
Some under cover investigators from Swiss Animal Protection/EAST International paid a visit to a fur farm in China and discovered what it really takes to get a fur coat for sale at the mall, sold at really high price. I myself dropped my knees for the price of one. According to PETA, Swiss Animal Protection/EAST concluded that, ”Conditions on Chinese fur farms make a mockery of the most elementary animal
welfare standards. In their lives and their unspeakable deaths, these animals
have been denied even the simplest acts of kindness.”
Animals at the fur farm are skinned alive to obtain the most expensive fur the have to offer, not even leaving an inch of fur for the animal. Since farmers never left an inch of fur to coat the animal, they will die in pain no one can imagine. Workers flip the animals from their hind legs or tails to skin them. When its too hard for the workers to get a clean cut of the skin, animals will be stomped from their neck or head to pull out the fur. Imagine how you remove your shirt out of your head, that is also how it is for the fur to be removed, just that this time, its the skin.
Once fur are finally removed, animals are naked but still alive. Bloody bodies are thrown to a pile of lifeless or struggling animals, all of them have gone first to be naked and stripped off their fur.
Just before these animals finally marched to their death row, they are inside their tiny screen cages. These cages only allow them to breath but not move. Most of the time there are more than one animal inside the cage. Animals are given slow death process by slamming them to hard surfaces or bludgeon them with metal rods.
No wonder these helpless and soon lifeless animals are living in hell. Mostly foxes, minks and rabbits are exposed to extreme cold and bad weather. Mother animals experience the unimaginable way of giving birth to her litters. Soon after giving birth, she will be skinned out of death not living a single chance for the litters to live the life they deserve.
I would like to give credit to the PETA where I got this awful but worth knowing story about these helpless animals. There are videos you can watch about these animals should you visit their website. I have also taken some of the photos to be posted here on my blog. There are more photos you can find here.
Let us all fight for the rigth of these animals. Let us spread the word until everyone’s attention is into them. Hopefully, the animals who suffered will claim their vengeance.
