I watched an investigative video yesterday related to the treatment of animals in the fur trade. This one inparticular was from J Lo's fur line. They had 100's of animals lined up (watching) in cages. These two men threw a grey fox on the gound and hit him twice with a club on the head and he yellped in agony. Yet, the fox was still alive. They then started to laugh and picked him up by the tail and hung him by his tail on a chain. Then they cut his bum and began the process of tearing the foxs' fur off ( and skin) in one big peice. Meanwhile the fox is still alive a wriggling around madly while he is being brutally tourtured for no reason at all, wondering what the hell he did to deserve it. They then pulled him off of the chain and threw him (still alive) in a truck full of half dead naked animals, bloddy and still wiggling. The fox had enough strength to just lift his head and look into the invetigators camera. Then the men grabbad a white fox out of his cage and started the same process on him. Of course I couldn't watch. I went to bed with that image stuck in my head and woke up with it....
i agree duchess. i will not watch it. i can tell by the replies that it is a sickening video. someone said that it was filmed by a peta cameraman? he had such a "love" for animals that he could stand there and film the entire ordeal and not try to do anything to stop it ? if i came accross such blatant animal cruelty. the fur would have been flying, but it wouldnt have come from any of the four legged ones ! peta always seems to be at all these places where this kind of cruelty is taking place. makes me wonder exactly what their true purpose really is.
HAH! Peta? Their sole purpose is to eradicate all pet animals once and for all!! Heck, I bet they joyfully help these jerks who are killing all these animals!
Considering how they've taken animals and claimed they'd find homes fast, then a day or so later the animals are found dead. PETA is full of hypocrites claiming to be for ethical treatment of animals. Their name should be PUTA. People for the UNethical treatment of animals.
the video a saw was filmed in the states. And I agree, if I was the camera man I wouldv'e definately done something to stop it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought about that, then I thought "well there has got to be a reason why he didn't". but then I thought, "If I was there I WOULDN'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THE REASON!!" I"m going to call PETA AND ask, I'll get back to ya'll.
I called PETA, I had to leave a message for them to call me back. When they do I'll ask why they didn't stop the skinnings while they could (if they could). I'll get back to you guys and let you know whay they say.
Ya, it was still alive when it was skinned. Most animals are, it's to "timely", to kill them all.......friggin sickning, just sickning. It's unbeleivable what people will do to animals. I can't comprehend it. I know that all animals have souls, feelings, memories, they dream, they make friends, they love. They need to be treated that way. Just like us.
