How are Animals KILLED to make FUR Products?

Fur-Bearing Animals are Killed by Gassing, Neck Breaking, Anal Electrocution, Clubbing, Trapping and Injection with Poisons so as not to damage their pelts.

Animals are Killed by Anal Electrocution, during which an Electrically Charged Steel Rod is inserted into the Animal’s Rectum, Literally Frying His or Her Insides Alive. Exposed broken bones, upper respiratory infections, and cancerous tumors were among the wounds and diseases that Animals endure without veterinary treatment.

Animals caught in steel-jaw leg hold traps are in so much pain that some actually chew off their limbs in order to escape. Since they are unable to eat, keep warm, or defend themselves against predators, many die in horrible ways before the trapper arrives to kill them.

Others suffer in the traps for days until they are caught and killed. To avoid damaging the pelt, trappers often beat or stomp animals to death. Whether they are enduring the excruciating pain of a leg hold trap or a lifetime of agony in a tiny cage, these animals suffer immensely.

YOU MAY NOT KNOW THIS!

  • China Produces 85% of the FUR on the planet. 
  • China has No Animal Welfare Laws to Protect Animals.
  • Fur Animals in China Suffer One of the Most Cruel and Savage Practices Ever Heard Against Defenseless Beings.
  • China has Hideous Cruelty which is hidden from consumers who may not know that each FUR article comes with the most Unimaginable amount of agony.
  • All this in the name of fashion. 

The Swiss Animal Protection Agency’s investigators found shocking footage from an investigation into the Chinese Dog and Cat FUR industry which revealed the slaughter of millions of Dogs and Cats. Bludgeoned, Hanged, Bled to Death, and Strangled with Wire Nooses so that their FUR can be turned into trim and trinkets.

Their FUR is often Mislabeled as that of other animals and exported into the U.S, the European Union, and other countries, where it may be sold to unsuspecting customers. Source: Antifursociety.org

The most common method used for killing foxes is anal electrocution. Mink are usually gassed or violently injected with poison. Many just have their necks broken or are asphyxiated. Investigation found that some minks are killed with weed killers, which can cause the animals to convulse for up to 10 minutes before death.

The chinchilla industry proudly admits that most chinchillas are killed by neck breaking or electrocution. Many chinchilla farmers hook one metal clamp to the ear, and another to her genitalia to implement the electrocution.

There are several methods employed in the killing of animals for their fur, all of which are deplorable. They are smothered, electrocuted by inserting electric prods in their rectums, hit in the head with hammers, and millions are actually SKINNED ALIVE. Infuriating, disgusting, and inhumane, isn’t it?

Karakul Coats: A Look at the Sacrificial Lambs

The Secret They Don’t Want You To Know

As if peddling the skin and Fur of a Tortured, Electrocuted Adult Animals weren’t bad enough, some heartless bastards called designers take fashion cruelty to a whole new level with a particularly grisly killer look: astrakhan, also known as broadtail or Persian wool the Fur of Newborn and fetal karakul lambs who are bred by the thousands in Central Asia for the Bloody Fur Trade.

Because their unique, highly prized curly fur begins to unwind and straighten within three days of birth, many Karakul Lambs are slaughtered when they are only 1 or 2 days old. The rest don’t even make it that far.

In order to get a Karakul fetus’s hide called broadtail in the industry and valued for its exceptional smoothness the mother’s throat is slit and her stomach slashed open to remove the developing lamb.

A mother typically gives birth to three lambs before being slaughtered along with her fourth fetus, about 15 to 30 days before it is due to be born.

As many as 4 million Karakul Lambs are slaughtered for their Fur every year.

All for the name of Fashion.

This is NOT fashion at all. This is Murder and we don’t there is nothing fashionable about murder.. Karakul Lamb Fur, by Sébastien Poumba

Always be aware of the type of clothing you buy. Is it real fur. Then say NO!! Tell them why you won’t buy their products, object and reject this blood money fashion.

Dr. Judith L. Eger ‘Animal Rights People Are Correct’.

Dr. Judith Eger, Senior Curator of Mammals for the Royal Ontario Museum’s Natural History Department, says:

“The Animal Rights People Are More Correct Than The Retailers.”

Judith Eger Confirms “The Widely Farmed Asian Raccoon Dog, Is A Species Of Wild Dog”.

“The Raccoon Dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) is a member of the Dog family, the Cadinae, one of 13 families of the order Carnivora,” she says.

The Canidae Family, which is found around the world, includes Domestic Dogs, Wolves, Coyotes and several other kinds of Wild Dogs, including the African Hunting Dog and, of course, the Raccoon Dog, explains Judith Eger.

All the species in this family have teeth designed for eating flesh, she says.

The Raccoon (Procyon lotor), on the other hand, belongs to the family Procyonidae, which is also in the order Carnivora. This family is restricted to South America, Central America and North America.

“Because of their omnivorous diet, procyonids have lost some of the adaptations for flesh eating found in carnivorous relatives,” says Judith Eger.

Considering Judith Eger’s divide, it is safe to assume that any Fur garment exported from China, that’s labelled Raccoon, would be Raccoon Dog, not Raccoon.

Dr. Judith Eger’s Bio

Judith Eger is Senior Curator of Mammalogy and Deputy Head of the Department of Natural History at the ROM. She has worked at the ROM since the fall of 1968, completing two graduate degrees in the early part of her career.

Judith was born and raised in Dryden, Ontario. Her academic interests focus on mammalian systematics and evolution (including speciation, zoogeography and phylogeny), concentrating on bats and arctic mammals, the topics of her M.Sc. and Ph.D. theses.

Since 1970, she has conducted and participated in collecting trips in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, Colombia, Caribbean Islands, Kenya, Vietnam and China.

Her current research focuses on the systematics and biogeography of the bats of Southeast Asia, and is an extension of her earlier work on the biogeography of the bats of Madagascar, examining the affinities of Madagascar bats to African and Asian species using morphological and genetic data.

Along with other ROM curators, Judith is working with the University of Guelph on a project to sequence the COI gene for the mammal tissue collection at the ROM. Referred to as the “Bar Code of Life Data Systems” (BOLD), and lead by Paul Hebert at the University of Guelph, the project will provide baseline sequences for mammals from Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, southeast Asia and China. In addition to providing a species identification tool, these sequences are being used in individual research projects.

Canada Imports Dog and Cat Fur From China

A Dog in Raccoon’s Clothing: Fur from Chinese Raccoon Dogs Creates Confusion

Raccoon dogs are seen at a cage in Tokyo's Ueno Zoo

Raccoon DOGS Are Seen In A Cage in Tokyo’s Ueno Zoo

Is It A Raccoon Or Is It A Dog?

The most widely mislabeled fur exported from China comes from a stubby legged, farmed animal that has the facial markings of a raccoon. Though it’s been labelled Gae-wolf, Asian jackal, China wolf and Asian wolf, it is most commonly called raccoon dog — and it has the potential to confuse retailers and consumers more than any other fur.

Animal rights activists know they can get an emotional response from consumers by emphasizing that it comes from the dog family. But retailers would rather call it raccoon, to soothe the concerns of squeamish shoppers.

It’s a matter of degrees, says one expert.

Judith Eger, senior curator of mammals for the Royal Ontario Museum’s natural history department, says “the animal rights people are more correct than the retailers.”

Cradling a stuffed version of the widely farmed Asian raccoon dog, Eger confirms the animal is a species of wild dog.

“The raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) is a member of the dog family, the Cadinae, one of 13 families of the order Carnivora,” she says.

The Canidae family, which is found around the world, includes domestic dogs, wolves, coyotes and several other kinds of wild dogs, including the African hunting dog and, of course, the raccoon dog, explains Eger.

All the species in this family have teeth designed for eating flesh, she says.

The raccoon (Procyon lotor), on the other hand, belongs to the family Procyonidae, which is also in the order Carnivora. This family is restricted to South America, Central America and North America.

“Because of their omnivorous diet, procyonids have lost some of the adaptations for flesh eating found in carnivorous relatives,” says Eger.

Considering Eger’s divide, it is safe to assume that any fur garment exported from China that’s labelled raccoon is most likely raccoon dog.

Australian Government Turns A Blind Eye On Dog Fur Trade

Humane Society International (HSI) has confirmed fears that the Australian Government is failing to enforce a ban on Cat and Dog Fur coming into Country. Independent Scientific Tests at three (3) different labs have proven retail outlets in Australia, including major department stores, are not only selling garments trimmed with Dog Fur, but also laced with Hexavalent Chromium a proven Carcinogenic, an agent directly involved in causing Cancer.

This is despite a ban the Howard Government imposed against the importation of Cat and Dog fur in 2004 following the overwhelming public outcry when HSI first exposed the cruel trade. Correspondence with the current Government shows they are not taking it seriously.

Australian Government Turns A Blind Eye On The Dog

Adding insult to injury, the University of NSW Analytical Centre has now uncovered dangerously high levels of toxicity in the leather from the Fur vests that tested positive as Dog. Hexavalent chromium or toxic chromium in the Fur vests was up to 733 times higher than recommended levels.

Hexavalent chromium is classified as a Class 1 Human Carcinogen by the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Hexavalent Chromium is also on the National Pollutant Inventory list, and reported to usually be highly toxic.

Fur vests are a popular fashion item this season and the trend is predicted to increase next winter. The Fur is often “Mislabeled” as Rabbit Fur or often made up names like Gae Wolf, Katzenfelt or Rex Rabbit, or just as “Fur” without the animal being specified.

Our undercover investigation* in China revealed the Heart Breaking Cruelty Dogs Suffer in the Fur farms. Dogs are skinned alive to preserve their pelts and pet dogs are often kidnapped for the trade.

*Warning the footage in this video may be disturbing to some viewers

 

HSI urges the Government to take the import ban seriously and direct Customs to undertake proper enforcement. We are also calling for immediate changes to labelling laws that would ensure that all fur products are labelled with the species and country of origin so that consumers, and retailers, are not misled.

“Despite bans on the importation of cat and dog fur being implemented back in 2004, following our global campaign, seven years later it would appear that these items have once again infiltrated our borders,” states Verna Simpson, HSI Director.

“When we go public on this issue the response is overwhelming, attracting by far the largest outcry of all the animal causes HSI has ever championed. Australian consumers certainly don’t want to purchase dog and cat fur products and most Australian retailers do not want to be at risk of selling it. It is unfortunate that the Minister has not intervened, to ensure the gaps allowing these illegal products onto the Australian market are closed immediately, and not pushed for tighter labelling laws to protect both consumers and retailers,” says Verna Simpson, HSI Director.

“There is no doubt there is dog fur entering Australia again this winter. We have absolute faith in the tests we conducted and the scientists engaged are beyond reproach. The sad fact is that dogs are still being horrifically killed in China for the Australian fashion market and retailers and consumers are still being deceived,” Verna Simpson states.
