Chinese racoon dog being used in a 2006 fall clothing line. Here is a web site that everyone who is on this forum should go to and VOTE AGAINST IT. There is a shocking video as well that people need to see but PLEASE DO NOT WATCH IT WITH CHILDREN IN THE ROOM.
I cried my eyes out watching it and all I can think about is what I saw. This is so sad and unnecessary to be done to the cats and dogs in the short video.
thxs i am so glad nothing i own has animal fur on it i could never own something like that. how could people do that. if i knew anyone who did omg i would shoot the he** out of them. i mean there is a puddle of water around me right now from the tears.
well people should neuter and spray there pets. and keep them safe. *wipes tears*

It got to everyone I have sent it to. It is hard to take but for the sake of maybe stopping it I thought it worth the tears. I hope all of you are putting in your vote to stop it. Sorry to keep bringing it up but it is easy to forget about after the video. You kind of go into a shell of sadness and forget to go back to the main page.

I canít believe that this topic only gets a few hits where as a Christmas Puppy gets over a 200 hits. I really thought this topic would hit home with everyone and get a lot of votes to stop this stuff from happening. With everyone going on about keeping dogs safe and not supporting back yard breeders I thought this would get more interest. Maybe I should have posted it as a puggle topic that seems to get everyoneís attention.
Sorry if this comes off as bad decorum but I am so depressed that it has gotten little attention. I voted to have it stopped, it may make no difference but is worth my time any day if it does stop it. And I watched it to the end, it was hard and sad but maybe thatís why Iím upset about the general interest from everyone on the topic. The last thing on that video HITS HOME.
Rott... it isnt that no one cares. Some people can't tolerate watching such videos. We are all well aware it goes on though. Its horrible and I hope all that did such horrible deeds to those animals goes to h*ll and gets skinned alive.... I signed the petition. As I have others in the past.
It's a good cause, keep posting and spreading the word.
You don't even have to look at the video if you don't want to in order to sign the petition. It's towards the bottom of the page, I believe directly under the video link.
My boyfriend and I signed, and I am emailing it around. "There are currently 248794 signature(s)."
Hey, hey Rottweiler_Lovers! Let's not make our own dogs stuffed in shelters and dying in our own country seem less important. America has it's own share of dysfunction.
Just because people aren't posting about it, or haven't had a chance to yet....doesn't mean guests viewing the page aren't signing and viewing the video.
The Christmas puppy thread has so many posts because it is mainly arguing and people posting their opinions. I doubt anyone short of psychotic would think the treatment of those animals was ok, and dare to argue with it.

omg... it's heart breaking to see there are sooo many suffering animals out there...... everytime i see things like this it makes me realize how fortunate my dog is... and make me want to treat it better.
I agree with Riley. It isn't easy to watch horrific videos. I cannot even watch Animal Cops. For those who have visited that link is it possible to vote without viewing the video? Some videos begin immediately and I want to avoid that.
gbroxon, it's not for UNSUPERVISED children to watch (and even some adults that can't tolerate the images) due to the graphic nature of the images, just like shows on Discovery Channel have disclaimers, the OP did the same; and the parents should be supervising the child's internet time; however, that is a different topic all together. Why would Pope care to comment on your comment? It seems pretty self-explanatory to everyone else on here. Anyway, I signed the petition and hope it makes a difference. We can help with awareness, however it will take years and/or some major import/export laws to get other countries that do slaughter domestic animals to change thier practices. We gotta start somewhere, though!
Man this stuff just makes me boil up inside and I can't stop crying. The last animal in the video is another animal but still, it was also in a fur video about animals skinned alive, which I've unfortunaly watched. I can't believe people are so inhumane to do this in other countries...
I always thought that its weird that animal abuse/torture always makes me cry and gets to me more rather than other everyday stories you hear about someone who was killed.... I guess I'm abnormal? I'm just the biggest animal lover.
