THAT cuddly cat in a basket may look like a lovable toy for a child, but in the case of one picked up in a Shetland gift shop by MEP Struan Stevenson, a judicious DNA test proved that, in a particularly grotesque irony, the toy was actually made from dog skin. The label simply stated "official animal by-product - China".
I can't bring myself to read that article but I can imagine that it wont be any different to things that I have read in the past and it's the pinnacle of cruelty. I cannot believe how they can be so callous and cruel. I have read not long ago that dogs are skinned alive and have been known to still have a heartbeat after they are cast aside. I will never forget that as long as I live.
The only thing we can do is to boycott their products and that includes rawhide treats from that country, yes they also use dog and cat skin in rawhide plus their rawhide is treated with arsenic and other dangerous chemicals. I would never buy or even take a product from that country because I wouldn't want that done to my dogs and I would consider myself a hypocrite if I okayed it to be done to other dogs and cats. It's such a cruel world, I just can't understand how people can be so heartless.
