    The fur industry is one of the world's cruelest, and China is the source of most of the world's fur products. In the absence of any legislation or government control, animals in the Chinese fur industry are subject to the most extreme forms of abuse. Investigations of fur farms in China have exposed shocking methods of trapping, transportation, confinement and killing. The species being used include not only typical sources of fur such as rabbits, foxes, minks and raccoons, but also domestic dogs and cats, whose furs are often being deliberately mislabeled and exported as fur from other species. More than 40 million animals are killed each year for their fur.

    For more information on the Chinese fur industry please refer to the these websites:

    Soup- If you don’t give a fuck- then why waste your time to comment at all? I respect your opinion just as we should all respect each others opinion. I happen to care deeply for animals and their rights.

    For anyone else who is interested here is a web site that contains a video with regards to the Chinese fur farms. It is quite disturbing.

  9. I used to not give much of a fuck, until I saw that video with the live skinned raccoons. That shit was fucking brutal. I just don't see the fucking point of not killing it first.

    I thought I needed to voice my indifference before this thread got underway, so the general voice was balanced.

    I see animal rights groups parading around my town all the damn time and I've owned dogs my whole life so I'm not an animal hater, but if you have the time to parade around San Francisco informing folks about ANIMAL RIGHTS... i can think of ten more important things to parade around for.

    We're human, we're not meant to feel guilty for where we are on the food chain.

    peta's got some sweet vids..
    like the one where they put cows from one side in this stall thing and it's head only hangs out, then a guy waltzes up and slices the cows neck, then they release it to the other side where it freaks out gasping for life and blood gushes everywhere.
    most people don't give a fuck where their food comes from or what's really in it, which is why so many people are unhealthy, fat, depressed and generally unhappy.

    Very well said- Burlap. I completely agree with you. I feel as though (and this is of course a generalization) until people see up close and personal where their food comes from- and the BGH that goes into the animal –then into us- meaning until it affects us directly- and we stand up- wake up and take bloody notice, nobody will give a fuck.

    Of course I realize that the people pandering around SF fighting, protesting for animals- human rights, torture, GITMO, equal rights and of course immigration issues- and such may not have 2 kids- or a mortgage to pay- along with the monthly car payment not to mention all those credit card payments. All of these things are important. For some though their list of “to do’s� simply goes in a different order than the person in the new M5 sitting at the red light- on Market Street- in 5 o’clock traffic trying to get home – only to circle the flat for an hour looking for parking because the nanny has yet again taken the garage.

    There are many directions that life takes us- which intern means our own list of “to do’s� winds up a bit different when we finally settle.

    To Soup- Your comment about us being human and not being meant to feel guilty about where we are on the food chain- should read that “you� do not feel guilty which is all well and good. I do not believe it is a matter of guilt but more over our own priorities and our own personal belief system. 2342

    You look at ANYTHING close enough and you'll get grossed out. You're depressed because you're looking at racoons getting fucking d-STROYED without and understanding of culture. Get a life... better yet, get a webber.
