A You Tube video just released by animal welfare organization Swiss Animal Protection/East International has created worldwide outrage calling for the ban on raccoon dog trade. The video shows a farmer pulling a raccoon dog out of its cage, slamming her on the ground and beginning the skinning process from the dog's back leg while the farmer's boot is pressed against the animal's neck to keep her from moving. The dog is then thrown on a pile of other skinned dogs, and as the filming continues, the dog barely lifts her head and waits for the final suffering relief of death which can take hours.
From raccoon dogs being skinned alive to bear farms where bears are killed for their bile to St. Bernards (raised to be eaten) facing torture and cruelty from the time of birth till death China has no bounds in gruesome inhumane treatment of animals.
If you care about these animals and others who suffer daily in China, then please sign the petition asking President Obama to place an embargo on China until the cruelty ceases and laws have been put in place to protect animals in China.
