The Humane Society newsletter arrived this weekend, and in it was this photo of a raccoon dog, taken to the market in China. Thousands of raccoon dogs are being skinned at public markets in China, and their fur is being sold to clothing manufacturers.

Pull the 'fur' apart down to its base - and if you see fabric below the 'fur', you know it's really 'faux' fur and not real animal fur.

Click here for a list of fur-free retailers.
look
THE GENERAL PUBLIC WOMEN EITHER DO NOT CARE OR ARE POORLY EDUCATED AS IN SERIOUSLY IN THEIR FACE. WE KNOW! I LIVE IN NYC , I AM A PERFORMER I SEE COUTURE ALL THE TIME/ IM ON EBAY WOMEN BUY FUR ALL THE TIME I WAS IN THE HEALTH FOOD STORE ( WELL) WHOLE FOODS YESTERDAY AND WOMEN WORE FUR FUR FUR FUR FUR AND PROUDLY SO THE QUESTION BECOMES HOW DO WE EDUCATE THESE WOMEN SO THEY GET IT? HAVE YOU READMY COUTURE COLLECTIONS LEATHER/FUR SCOUTING INT HE STORES? THEY ARE BOUGHT BELIEVE ,E AND THEY ARE A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY. SO AGAIN IF THE WOMEN DID NOT WEAR IT STUPID FRIGGING CHINA WOULD NOT BE MAKING SO MUCH MONEY
THE MINK FARMS , RABBITTS CHINCHILLA AND FOXES THESE ARE THE BIG SELLERS
AND LEATHER SKINS SO BUTTERY THEY HAD TO BE FROM BABIES

DESIGNERS UP THE PRICE OF THEIR SWEATERS OR COATS WHEN TRIMEED IN RABBIT OR MINK EVEN A COUPLE OF INCHES IT IS PATHETIC. AND WOMEN DO BELEIEV IT IS GLAMOUROUS AND DO BELEIEVE THEY WILL GET A MAN OR HOLD A MAN THIS WAY. AND THISIS THE TRUTH . SO LETS DISCUSS PRACTICAL WAYS .

CUTE SEXY FAUX FUR

TO CONTINUE EVERYONE IN EUROPE WEARS REAL FUR. IM TALKING COUTURE
I SPOKE WITH MY BEST FRIEND IN SWITZ, they go to st moritz ski resorts everywhere , look thisi sthe reality this is what is going on. we need to
a) make education available in schools for children so they learn early on about animal welfare
20 impress upon women dead animals oon the body is not glamourous. but you see this is the crux of the issue when a woman really believes she needs to spend upwards to 36000 on a hermes bag and a fur coat to out do another woman to get a nd hold a man . i cant repeat this enough. so i do really beleiev it lay in the future if the next few generations and that begins in school
any ideas to implement education in schools??????????????????????????????????

I HAVE COINED A NEW PHRASE:

"TELL ME, IS THAT SKINNED ALIVE PUSSY YOU ARE WEARING OR SKINNED ALIVE BITCH?"

IF I HAD ANY MONEY I WOULD HAVE GRAPHIC T-SHIRTS MADE WITH THE COMMENT.

YOU CANNOT TELL ME THESE WOMEN DO NOT KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON. THE DESIGNERS ET AL.

IT IS TIME TO GET DOWN AND GET NASTY.

hi colleen dear
some know some turn a blind eye some do not care or know the overriding motivation and whatever you want to term it is as i have stated and that is the way it is and that needs to be the ground change
to have overall , the solution. education of the children and getting the women to understand that faux fur can be just as so called gklamourous and they do not need real fur to get or hold a man or ot keep warm.

china is the worlds cruelest and most barbaric animal torturer and abuser. i personally dispise anybody who goes there for the olympic games, no matter how much the like sports, but china has to be boycotted in any way possible!!! the are as bad as nazimurderers against all lifeforms!!

China has killed off a great portion of the worlds most beautiful animals for PROFIT and is the leader in this worldwide underground trade/market. Low down, dirty rotten scum bags!! I wouldn't go to the Olympics if someone payed me to do so. BAN ALL THEIR PRODUCTS!! Write your local TV and news papers...get the word out. The best way to stop profiteers is to hit their profits.

China should be BANNED from the WORLD. They kill off animals in BRUTAL ways, hunt whales, skin animals alive, poison their air, water and land and try to do the same to the rest of the world with the tainted, poisoned products they send out. There are MORE miscarrages of babies in China than anywhere else in the world because of the environment these people are subject to living in. They kill baby girls...wtf is up with that? They are the most barbaric, inhumane, uncaring country in the world. We need to stop them! Get them where they live - the wallet! They may have the cheapest labor costs in the world but at what cost?

China seems to be hell bent on consuming everything existing on our globe. Why? So they can starve to death again when they have destroyed every animal and natural resource needed for survival??
They need to make some BIG changes before we are all consumed by their vast appetites.

there's a problem with boycotting China!
everthing in stores comes from China and manufacterers also get ingredients from China then they put the finishing touches on their products and then they have the rights to put made in Canada or U.S.A on them and people think their buying local. IT"S A LIE!! IT"S FROM CHINA!

for example-- let's say 100% pure apple juice that comes from China to Canada where the manufacurer add's water to it is now labled a product from CANADA. The Chinese laugh at us when we say boycott China and this is why!!!
Also there is only 2 places on Earth that makes VITAMINS! CHINA AND SWITZERLAND!

Hello all, you all are correct!! I spent 3 weeks in China training them for my job (thanks to the free trade agreement). The smog was so bad, 2 nights I cried my eyes out, you COULD NOT SEE THE STARS! You could see the moon but it looked fuzzy, like a light in a dense fog. Their Government could care less about anything that I know of except monies in their own pocket. The rivers were so polluted that I felt like if I had fallen into one of them, I think my skin would have fallen off. The people that worked at the Philips/Magnavox plant there were coughing like they had been smoking for years and they did not smoke! When I came back in 1998, I told my co-workers that we didn't have to worry about them, they were killing themselves. A couple of years later, SARS showed up, now maybe the bird flu?? Have you also noticed that if they kill a couple of thousand of their own people, over Government just shakes a finger at them. However, if it happens to a "smaller" country they (our Government) gets mad and is ready to go "defend" those people. What a double standard. I think our Government is kissing their tail. Have you ever heard that expression "keep you friends close but keep your enemies closer?? You know if they have no regard for human life including their own people that they sure are not going to care about the animals. However, the good news here is that the regular Chinese citizen DOES CARE! Of course, they would be executed if they stand up for what they believe in. Remember Tinemin (spelling?) Square? NOTED!!!

Horrendous... and so sad... has anyone started a petition... we can talk and talk all day.. boycotting is somewhat ambigious since the people and citizens are mostly innocent.... I am beyond myself sometimes....

Our country needs to STOP importing any more POISON from China no matter what packaging it comes in. Because the labour costs are so low there, the greedy suppliers here can make a killing off their products. I, for one, am boycotting products from China, fish from Canada (til the slsughter of baby seals stop) and any other product I feel is exploiting poorer nations' common people. Perhaps more will join me. I certainly hope so.....thanks!!!!!!!!

yes,i agree with all of you,this stuff going on in china will haunt you,i will carry these images around with me for the rest of my life,but remember what goes around comes around,there"s a saying in the bible it goes something like this(for do not worry,cause god has his revenges)and god has not caught up with them yet,and their doing a good job of killing themselves,with the pollution and diseases,now all the product they keep sending over here,that"s bad,not good for their toy companys,and this whole fur thing,is spreading like wildfire,heck i told my dad about it,in like a week or so half of arkansa was aware of it,from their neigbor,to their doctors,you would be surprised all it takes is a few people,so hold your head up high keep fighting.

THE LADY[ASIAN] BEHIND THE COUNTER WAS AGAST WHEN I TOLD HER OF THE SKINNED DOGS BEING THROWN ALIVE INTO THE DUMPSTERS. SHE DIDN'T KNOW!!!! OH WELL, CHINA OWNS THE UNITED STATES SO THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DO AS THEY PLEASE. SO TOO WILL JAPAN WITH THE WHALES AND DOLPHINS.

I know all of you have said this better than I.have or will;All of your posts are valuable, but in the mean time these poor helpless babies(dogs) etc. any animals, are still being killed for money each and every day, all people are just so un-aware and I at times think people want to remain this way! They think well I didn't do it, but yet there still eating meat, still buying by products of animals to eat and wear and to hang in their houses as if it is a trophy to look at upon their walls... the shoes we wear the purses we buy, how many look to see if it is real leather or just fake leather???I Often I think where are all the people whom really care??? We all must stop and really check ourselves out first and formost before we can truely make a difference...it all starts with a single step...we are one, but yet we are so divided...look around your house, see just how many many things are made form helpless animals...now if you really want to do something about this, educate, your young, your friends your family any one you can...stop eating meat, stop buying leather and fur, then and only then are you REALLY doing something about it, I suppose so many think if you just sign a petition you are helping...well wake up, be a part of the solution and not the problem...you can talk until you are blue in the face...but if you are not doing the walk, then stop the talk...I am not aiming this at anyone here...all I am doing is trying to make people realize, you must...once again you MUST, help all the innocent voiceless animals on this earth~ for without them I know we would all be truely lost, you will never find another to love you unconditionally, especially if you are seeking that in a human being~ Hugs, and warm wishes to all, Robin...as you can tell NOTED!!!

Who pay them to do it? Vote with your mighty dollars. The greedy importers get most of the profit. Do you know about sweat factories in China. People leave their home, may it be a wife, a husband, or an unmarried young adult, working thousands miles away from home. They live in dorms next to the factories. Only when it is major holidays they cramp into trains to reunite with their families. Largely for the demand of the developed world's importors.
