Warning: "Fake" Fur "Made in China" Might Be Dog/Cat Fur!

In case you haven't heard, since the ban on real fur in 2000, it's been discovered that China has been mislabeling "faux" fur, which is, in reality, animal fur, much of which come from dogs and cats.

Estimates are that approximately a million animals, including dogs and cats, in China are crammed into cages, then beaten, clubbed, and skinned alive for their fur each year. Some of them are still alive even after they have been skinned. If you Googled the words, you would see pictures taken by investigators - but don't go there if you don't want to have nightmares! "I can still hear the screams," said one investigator.

PLEASE DON'T BUY "FAKE" FUR (OR ANYTHING RESEMBLING FUR) MADE IN CHINA AND LET ALL YOUR FRIENDS KNOW ABOUT THIS! PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD ON THIS HORROR.

Also, please pray for those poor, defenseless animals who have no voice.

Here's an article (don't worry -- no graphic pictures in this article, which is why I'm posting this article):

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/20/business/faux-fur-case-set...

The Humane Society and other animal rights groups are lobbying to include all "imitation fur from China" added to the already existing ban.

Ignoring many of the untruths

Ignoring many of the untruths in the NYT article, just the exerts from this post are extremely untrue.

There is not 'fur ban'. Fur is a perfectly legal commodity. There are thousands of trappers throughout the United States and Canada.

Animals, even in the 'evil' China, animals are not skinned alive. There is no practical reason to do so, but more importantly, this practice would create a huge risk to the skinner. Obviously, an alive critter will fight back (in addition to being unimaginably cruel). There are a few (probably a lot) disingenuous PETA videos that encourage this lie.

I would encourage everyone to look into the fur industry. http://www.montanatrappers.org/management/traps-today.htm

in 2000 the U.S. BANNED dog/cat fur

in 2000 the U.S. BANNED the import, export, and sale of products made from dog and cat fur. Europe has also banned it.

I suggest you check the actual history of China's fur industry and the state lobbying ever since by the Humane Society to try to include "faux" fur from China in the ban.

While you're at it, check out the video and the pictures of the live skinned dogs. Notice the ones still alive. Watch the clubbing of them.

Either you just don't know what you're talking about or are deliberately trying to mislead. I hope it isn't the latter.

do the same thing to the residents of Gaza. Only they don't profit from selling the skin. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/jan/16/phosphorus-bombs...

I Don't Buy Any Of That Crap

We live in a truly sick world don't we?

skippy

Yes, it is.

Please mention this to people you know. The more people who know about this, the fewer who buy this type of clothing made in China. Thanks.

When I Said I Don't Buy That Crap

I meant the fur stuff. Wasn't talking about the article. This article has disturbed me greatly ever since I saw it. I have several cats and love them dearly. I wish the people that do such horrible things would be reincarnated as those animals they abuse!

skippy

I understand what you meant.

Don't Google it, whatever you do. I wish I hadn't.

There's a growing number of humane organizations out there informing the public and also lobbying to include "imitation" fur from China included in the ban. It's an awful thing to hear about, but I think only by shining a light on it can it be stopped.

SOME Chinese, perhaps

And SOME Americans and Brits as well are sociopathic monsters, but how can "China" be sick?

Conflation is the beginning of bigotry.

If you skin dogs and cats alive...

...for their fur and your government is just fine with that because it brings in money, would you think that's sick or would you think that's just a matter of choice?

Or do you think skinning dogs and cats alive for fur is okay -- so long as it isn't done to your own dog or cat, that is?

Have you seen the pictures of them? Many of them are still alive after they've been skinned, but not for long, of course. It's beyond heart breaking -- to anyone with a heart, that is. And China is deliberately mislabeling the fur to read "imitation" fur to get through the ban that the U.S. placed on fur from China because of their infamous cruelty to animals.

"The godly care for their animals, but the wicked are always cruel." ~ Proverbs 12:10

"My" government...

..is not me, nor is it my country.

But I see my point has already been taken, and the conflated offense ("China is sick") has been redacted.

Thank you.

Whether or not I am "okay" with wanton cruelty was not my point. Just because SOME Americans are wicked and cruel, and because our occupation government is beastly and sadistic, doesn't mean that "America" is sick.

I repeat

China is sick. No -- make that BEYOND SICK, both the fur factories and the Chinese Government which condones the fur factories' extremely evil practices. They will indeed reap what they sow.

Nobody has mentioned the U.S. Government or Americans here. This thread is solely to try to warn people to not buy "faux" fur made in China, for it is not imitation fur -- it's made from the most extreme cruelty to animals imaginable. Your trying to ignore that point and change the subject only shows to me your lack of compassion for these poor, defenseless animals.

Thank you for clarifying

"China is sick" is rankest conflation. The expression tars ALL Chinese, irrespective of their INDIVIDUAL attributes.

Collective guilt, collective "sickness", collective redemption, and collective punishment are the tactics of Lincoln, Sherman, Sheridan, Al-Qaeda, Bush, and Obama.

So what exactly drew you to a website dedicated to the LEAST collectivist congressmember of the last couple of generations?

It would make no sense

It would make no sense to skin an animal alive. They would fight. Can you imagine trying to skin a cat alive? You would be sliced to shreds.

Dogs or cats, they would not hold still for it, and I am fairly sure that whomever did the skinning would end the animal's life first.

Either way, I don't agree with skinning dogs or cats.

Have you seen the video?

Still ALIVE. I guarantee you will have nightmares if you see it. I can't get the images out of my mind. I wish I'd never seen them. I didn't believe it either till I saw it. Horrible is not a strong enough word...

Since the Chinese Government refuses to put a stop to it because it brings in revenue, Americans must know -- they're selling this as IMITATION FUR to get around the ban. The only way to stop it is to put them out of business by not buying their so-called imitation fur.

Again, "I can still hear the screaming" (quote from an investigator who took pictures of what's happening in those fur factories). A million a year. God have mercy.

Yea, giving it a little

Yea, giving it a little thought, I would have to agree. I doubt they could do it while it was still living. Extra manpower to hold it down would also be a waste. I would think though that they use whats left as food.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

Still alive

As I told the other poster, I didn't believe it either until I saw it. It's beyond evil. There's video of it and pictures and they're easy to find if you Google it -- but don't go there if you don't want nightmares. I wish I'd never seen it. That's why I couldn't post the pictures or video.

That's why I'm trying to warn people. China is selling this dog/cat fur to the U.S. and deliberately mislabeling it as "faux" fur to get around the ban. The only way to stop this that I can see is to put those fur factories in China out of business by informing American consumers the truth. That and a lot of prayer.

I posted

A month or two ago on how china skins animals alive for fur trade. I think it got down voted by libertarians here.

Then again much of what cruel and evil stuff China does is given a pass here in what I have seen. It seems as freedom and liberty is a one way street at times unfortunately.

Reap what you sow.

donvino

Only monsters...

...would downvote a post warning people of fur that's labeled "faux" fur but is in reality made from dogs and cats skinned alive, who die the most horrible, slow death imaginable.

China isn't the only place where monsters live, it appears. It's beyond sad.

May God, please, help those poor defenseless animals in China who have no voice.

China isn't selling fur...

...to the Chinese. With about a million cats and dogs killed a year (in the most gruesome way imaginable), you can bet a lot of people in America are unknowingly buying the mislabeled "faux fur."
