First thing’s first. It pains me to having repeat this subject, but with Chinese New Year and the Year of the Tiger this year, it is ironic to imagine how such a culture that put animals as symbols of fortune, prosperity, and pride, can practice such a disgusting act of cruelty to the very same animals they supposedly adorn.
In the below post from a fellow blogger, once again, the subject of dogs and cats beings excruciating mistreated and killed in the name of fur is exposed by a Chinese pedestrian. Below, and he quotes:
“…After throwing the animals on the ground, the workers can also be seen kicking them as they lie helpless and shrieking in pain. According to the video, this inhumane way of producing fur coats is often unknown to western shoppers who buy fur products, oblivious to where the fur has come from. In an email, STOMPer Cheong says:
“What’s wrong with these people? “Circulate this and expose their deeds because they ought to be punished.”
The videos in that post is really graphic. But for those of you who are oblivious to where your furs come from, you NEED to know this, and you need to care. You may say “What’s the difference between you anti-fur people and eating steak or chicken?” Well, there isn’t really. But dogs and cats are one notch up in our world, as they are our companions, even to the Chinese. Many of these dogs are actually STOLEN from their homes illegally. So why are they suffering so, and for fashion?
Let’s make this new year one that’s informed so we can help decrease of unnecessary suffering of all living things.
