China has an appalling record regarding animal rights. Among the cruelty to animals in China there is:-
*The slaughter of cats, dogs and other animals by skinning them alive.
*The use and export of this fur to countries such as ours.
*Dogs beaten to death on the streets of China on a regular basis.
Everyday, countless thousands of dogs (many former pets) are inhumanely caged, beaten, tortured, killed and butchered, often times publicly, to feed the Chinese demand for dog meat. This activity occurs, while simultaneously three quarters of the Chinese population have indicated a desire for improved animal welfare protections and an end to the dog meat industry. Pet ownership in China has also increased dramatically, in recent years.
China supplies more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the United States. Many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when fur farm workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their tails or legs to skin them. When workers start cutting the skin and fur from the animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a clean cut. Then the fur is peeled over their heads & they're thrown into a pile of animals that have gone before them. Some are still alive. Some animals' hearts beat 5-10 minutes after they're skinned. Before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cage and thrown to the ground-workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces-causing broken bones & convulsions but not always immediate death.
No living being deserves this evil-cruel-barbaric & extremely inhumane treatment. Please be their voice and sign this petition.
