This is an issue that I am really attacking because the facts are disturbing. In China, they bludgeoned to death, skin alive, and torture domestic dogs and cats then purposefully mislabel them and send them to the US as exotic furs. I really want my state of Colorado to ban this trade and any fur coming from China. I thought I would start this topic and see what you all had to say about it.
A devastating reality! Torture of poor animals! June 22, 2010 6:19 AM
Brittany, thank you for enlightening me to this tremendously disturbing lengths that people will go to, just to make money. I have cats, just as most people on this site have cats and domestic pets. This is just sickening news! There is so much torment going on, not just animals, but people as well. You know, if they are hurting people for monetary gain, they will hurt animals for the same reason. I have precious kitten with the beautiful eyes. I couldn't imagine abusing him and then having to look into his trustful eyes after committing such a despicable thing to him. How can these people look these animals in the eye, see their fear and their terror, and go ahead with these atrocious acts? It's so frustrating. I hope you can do something about this Brittany. Please let me know if I can do anything else to help.
I am in the middle of developing a petition for this issue so I will post when I have it completed and would love your support. Thank you so much for the post and your offer to help. This is such a devastating topic and it needs all the attention it can get. Take care Rosemary!!
So thoughtful of you Brittany June 23, 2010 5:43 PM
Brittany, thanks for taking the time to respond to my submission personally. You are a very sensitive and kind person and certainly a credit to the animal rights movement. But sometimes my feelings get hurt overly much and I really shouldn't expect you to respond personally to each of my posts. I know you have a lot on your mind. I just feel a little ashamed of that note I sent you. I love your group and am so glad I joined. I want so badly to help animals but financially, right now all I can do is sign petitions and pray for them. But I really admire people like you Brittany and Borg and all the other petition writers and others who go out of their way to help animals. I live in Louisiana and the senator here in Louisiana, David Vitter sent an email to his constituents. He devoted it exclusively to the animals who are being affected by the oil spill. He seems very concerned about them. I hope he can find a way to help them. Thanks again Brittany and I'll be looking for the petition.
