Default I am sickened (graphic)

I got an e-mail from PETA today where they've turned over a video secretly taped showing the HORRIBLE and SICKENING treatment of dogs and cats slaughtered for their FUR in China. Many still have collars on because they were stolen family pets. They jam them in cages -- a sardine in a can has more room -- dogs legs are litterally wrapped around their bodies because they're crushed down into a cage. Then throw them off the top of huge trucks while in their cages only crashing to the floor 10 feet below, often shattering bones in the meantime. I am absolutely sick... this has really affected me. We must be aware. I'm talking THOUSANDS of animals. PLEASE boycott J. Crew clothing as they are a big buyer of this fur from China.

The fur trade in China has always sickened me...that people can be so heartless is amazing.

That's all well and good, but don't listen to PETA too much. They'll take this incident, and claim all animals world wide which are killed for food, fur etc are treated this way.

I don't care if it is an "isolated" event (which I doubt). It's absolutely horrific -- the terror in those poor animals eyes. So, next time people make over those "cute shoes" that have fur with black and white spots on them on the upper (which I HAVE done just thinking it was from a cow slaughtered for meat -- in other words, a by-product since they were slaughtering it anyway), think again. Most likely "Made in China" is somewhere on it and it's a dalmation or other type of dog. Or, even worse, they're exporting their fur under other names than DOG or CAT to get past the loopholes, which I know they do.

I'm not justifying the way those animals are treated, I'm just saying don't take everything PETA says as gospel and never questioning it. For the record, I thought the way those animals were treated was terrible as well.

I hear you, Mikey. I don't either. Like waving banners above highway overpasses at Thanksgiving damning anyone that eats turkey at Thanksgiving, etc. etc. I'm not a "backer", per se, but I stay in touch with their investigations such as this and puppy mills, and laboratory animal treatment, etc.

Vega, that's uncalled for. Any country has it's good and bad points. There are plenty of things that North Americans do that could be considered "all wacked out." Please remember that this is a diverse forum with members from all over the world and all different backgrounds.
