Focus: Animal Welfare
Action Request: Petition
Location: China
Target: chinese government, ambassadors and designers/organisations
Sponsored by: svenbeuckelaers

I forgot to include the petition in the share the first time
Please sign this petition.  Animals are being skinned alive in China.  Although this petition has been around once, it didn't generate enough signatures, so it is being sent again.  Please, please sign.  These animals are being absolutely tortured.

There is a video that should be here, but I can't figure out how to embed it in this share.  It is horrifying, and actually shows one of the skinned animals lifting its poor head up and looking into the camera because it is still alive.  For the sake of all compassion, love for living things, and a desire to stop such unbelievable suffering, please sign this petition to stop the live skinning of animals.  US corporations are importing these pelts because they are cheap.  Let's tell them that we will not tolerate that.

Facts about Chinese Fur Farms

The United States should strongly oppose the shocking treatment of animals raised, killed, and skinned alive on Chinese fur farms and take action by urging the U. S. Ambassador to China to convey the United States' opposition to these cruel savage methods.

  • A year-long undercover investigation by Care for the Wild International (CWI), Swiss Animal Protection and EAST International of fur farms in China's Hebei Province revealed that before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cages and thrown to the ground before workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces, causing broken bones and convulsions but not always immediate death. Other animals watch helplessly as workers make their way down the row.
  • Many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. Video evidence shows workers on these farms cutting the skin and fur from an animal's leg while the free limbs kick and writhe. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals' heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile. Some of the animals are still alive, hearts beating for as long as 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera.
  • On these farms, foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals pace and shiver in outdoor wire cages, exposed to driving rain, freezing nights, and, at other times, scorching sun. Disease and injuries are widespread, and animals suffering from anxiety-induced psychosis chew on their own limbs and throw themselves repeatedly against the cage bars.
  • There are no regulations governing fur farms in China%u2014farmers can house and slaughter animals however they see fit.
  • A growing number of international fur traders, processors, and fashion designers have gradually shifted their business to China, where the absence of restrictive regulations makes life easier and profit margins broader.
  • Fur from China ends up in virtually every mall in America, on jackets and other garments with fur collars, trim, and lining. A survey of U.S. retail outlets reveals that many mass-market fur-trimmed garments carry the "Made in China" label. However, since raw fur pelts often move through international auctions before being sewn in other countries, the final product may also read, "Made in Italy," or, "Made in France" making it impossible for consumers to know where the fur originates.
And I for one am tired of being at China's mercy because of shady American corporates whose only concern is their precious bottom line. Between the two entities, we the people are being played as fools and it is time to tell them that the American public will no longer tolerate such callousness from China and our own government and corporations. Thank you for helping these innocent animals.

Please help with this so that these two cruel and vicious people can be put where they belong.  Perhaps we can influence the trial. PLEASE SIGN THIS AND FORWARD IT TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN.

thanks......Elizabeth N

I know this has been around and already has over its goal of signatures – but these SOBs are back on trial so let’s try and give it another push!! Thanks for fwding again Catman!

Dear Friends:
I'm sending this out because there is new trial scheduled in early January for these two
monsters. They showed absolutely no remorse for baking a puppy to death in an oven and sneered at the animal welfare activists attending their first trial. If you have not signed this petition please do and forward and cross post far and wide.
This petition will be used to help strengthen animal abuse laws and incarcerate these two so they cannot do more harm.

Thanks and Bless You All
Catman P.

 People I am forwarding this to 800+ people with a "PLEA"
for more signatures PLEASE !!!  As of May 7th there are
445 Signatures. a good start but I "NEED" people to
understand how important our children are. Other petitions
have 10,000 signatures for agriculture. IS THIS NOT AS
IMPORTANT??  PLEASE...........SIGN !! I wish you heard
in detail what this child I know said to me. He said no one
would listen if I said anything. He was never taught that he
could speak up & that it was not his fault. People noticed a
"HUGE" change but no one did anything. We "NEED" education for everyone. These kids don't deserve to endure this abuse and not be taught that YES they can speak up. Teachers,etc...need to be educated and educate. PLEASE HELP??  SIGN..I'm praying for so many more signatures. Please get the word out?

New Petition as of 4/29 and 8 Signatures right now. We have a chance to blast this out the door....!!
This is a priority for our children. This hits home for me and many others personally or knowing someone that has or is being abused as a child right now and THEY NEED TO KNOW IT'S SAFE TO SPEAK UP.
The young 11 yr old boy I know that recently went through this for 2 years to an extreme!  NO ONE noticed..... Not until he was found almost dead, beaten to a pulp w/every bone, rib in his body
broken,bruises everywhere, and sexually violated.
He displayed all the behavioral changes and dressed 
completely covered head to toe. No teachers or anyone did anything....
I personally do not live in the same state so I had no idea and met him right after all this occurred. I couldn't believe no one noticed.
Teachers are around these kids more than anyone else. They need to be educated. Everyone needs to be aware of any changes in infants to what ever age children.PLEASE HELP?? PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION, CROSS-POST WIDELY & KEEP IT CIRCULATING.THIS IS A HIGH PRIORITY PETITION........  NO CHILD SHOULD HAVE TO ENDURE THIS! PLEASE CARE,PLEASE SIGN......!!
Thank You for caring,
Kym Cree

Give Children A Voice.
