Warning: "Fake" Fur "Made in China" Might Be Dog/Cat Fur!Submitted by dinahtab on Fri, 04/05/2013 - 16:25
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):
The Humane Society and other animal rights groups are lobbying to include all "imitation fur from China" added to the already existing ban.
