There is documented evidence by all international animal welfare agencies in the world, that China is using domestic dogs and cats to get their fur and it is one of the most heinous, and brutal business where cats and dogs undergo terrible torment and unimaginable suffering! I urge you to pass laws banning the importing of cat and dog fur just like the U.S., the European Union and Australia to stop this horrific cruelty! Please join the rest of these Nations now to finally bring this egregious trade to an end.

No country should wear fur. We are not cavemen anymore. Most of us are not wearing fur for survival of the fittest in cold weather, we are wearing them for fashion bullshit. Especially all these celebrities looking like some sort of beast when they are sporting their so-called cool fur, we could use the money for something else!
