I'm in awe of the courage necessary to get this video taken and publicized. All over the world there are people who go underground to document conditions and practices on tuna vessels, in pet shops, kennels, shelters, places where cruelty is suspected. It sounds gruesome and hazardous, getting people you work with to let down their guard, eating meat to blend in even if you're a vegetarian, and spending all your time for months on end with no human company but the people you're there to expose. Plus sometimes taking part in the very activities you're there to document, by way of not blowing your cover. Sometimes they need serious counseling once they come back, I don't have what it takes to do any of that, but truly admire the people who do.
250,435 signatures & counting.......I couldnt cut off the video fast enough......its a good thing I cant jump in the car & drive over there & find these & others like them in this video....................this year for the 1st time in my life (I'm almost 50) I had to PTS a Lab Mix I rescued 8+ years ago, I did it in May & even though I know it was the best thing to do for her, I close my eyes & see that last "image". And yes, I remember all the good times we had. Then I have my "Old Buddy" (GSD 12yo, had since a baby) sitting here on the couch w/me while I write this. Its funny how even though they cant "say" how glad they are to see you everytime you come home, their body language/actions speak volumes.
lalamom ~ "An Eye For An Eye" exactly MY point! I agree with you totally and I wish that people that did such things were punished! I have not watched the video as I am 15 and I promised myself when I saw the contents of the chat and the mentioning of the video and it's contents that I would never look at it, nor the pictures. I watched the television program: "McArtney's V's The Fur Trade" and the video's in that were SO sickining that I had nightmares for weeks after, and I do not mind, one bit, telling the truth about that! I feel that the people that do that to those animals are heartless and they make money from it, but if somebody started skinning them people for money, they would complain it was totally against their "Human Rights!" WHAT rights does any person that does those sorts of things have? My answer? NONE and they NEVER should!
WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF THE ANIMALS?
I am a TOTALLY TRUE animal lover, anything that can breathe or move, I love! I will do anything for animals, but watch that video, I wouldn't be able to do! When I watched the tv program I was sobbing UNCONTROLABLY at the sound, more than the sight of what was happining to the poor, defensive dogs. I look up to Heather Mills for lending her voice to the animals, but just her help is no-where near enough! People need to help, sign the petiton if you feel you can face the sounds and sights of murder! But, please help the poor, lonely and defensless animals used for fur and skin!
SHAME ON YOU JENNIFER LOPEZ AND OTHER FUR USERS, MAYBE YOU SHOULD WORK WHERE THEY KILL THE ANIMALS AND THEN WEAR THAT PIECE OF FUR THAT YOU WATCHED BEING BRUTALLY MURDERED!!!!!
"Celebrities" that are "Role Models" that use fur and skins, should NOT be on television, they should NEVER be using the fur and so maybe they should spend a day or two, with those animals, that in some days to come, be around their necks, and then watch them; when they want to buy another blood covered fur garment!!!
PLEASE DO NOT EVER WATCH THE VIDEO'S OR LOOK AT THE PICTURES IF YOU ARE UNDER 16 (AT LEAST) IT IS SUCH A BAD IDEA AND I KNOW OF THAT! PEOPLE THAT WANT TO WATCH PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU SIGN THE PETITION TO HELP!!
Now is the time that I wish that I had at least one of those animals to call my own, so that I could cuddle up with them and tell them that they would be safe forever! But, we ALL need to work together to help stop this, for the animals; NOT for the people that kill them, or the people taht wear their skins and furs!
I have got to say I do not have a weak stomach, but that was horrible. I couldnt even get through the first minute or two, my stomach starting turning, I thought i was going to throw up! That is so horrible those people should be skinned alive..an eye for an eye!! I definantly signed the petition, and i hope that it makes a little bit of a difference. My heart goes out to those poor animals!
although i hated watching it, because it was so bad, i would suggest everybody to watch it.
And by watching it, im sure they will do something about it. Like if someone in their family or someone they know is buying a real fur coat, then they can try to get them not to do it, because they know what the animals go thru by watching the video (hope that makes scence) i just think everybody should watch it, because it will get them into "action" and hopefully it will help.
i DID not watch the video but i was reading this forum today..... and later i was on a DIFFERENT web site and this poped up.... very good aticle and i do not think the Humane socity of america would put this on thier web site if it was not true..... Sry if this link has already been posted :-S
I didn't watch the video because it sounds very bad and i think 13 is to young to watch it. now i watch animal cops all the time and i feel bad for any animal that has to go through that. i want to be a vegitarion and am going to try. i signed the petition hope it helps.

That is the most horrible thing I have ever seen. I had no idea that was going on. I cringe just to think about those poor poor babies!!!! Those people should be punished within an inch of their lives.
