MORE SHOCKING PHOTOS OF RACCOON DOGS ARE SKINNED ALIVE IN CHINA INSIDE

RACCOON DOGS ARE SKINNED ALIVE IN CHINA
Such was the case when I chose to view the undercover video of a Chinese fur farm taken by investigators of Care for the Wild, EAST International, and Swiss Animal Protection. [Warning: This video is extremely graphic and disturbing.]
For those who don’t have the stomach to watch this kind of video, here is a description of the scenes. The investigation reveals that before the raccoon dogs are skinned alive, they are thrown to the ground with a forceful blow to the head and then bludgeoned with metal rods in attempt to stun the animal. More often than not, the animalâ€™s bones are broken and they are temporarily stunned rather than dead. 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. The video 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. Reports indicate that 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.
Prior to their unimaginably painful death, the animals live in the cruelest of conditions as they pace and shiver in outdoor wire cages, exposed to all of the elements—rain, freezing nights, or scorching sun. Not surprisingly, injury and disease are commonplace. Anxiety-induced psychosis leads to self-mutilation, infanticide and other extreme, desperate behaviors.
The Swiss Animal Protection / East-International 2007 report, Dying for Fur—A Report on the Fur Industry in China, informs us that “there are no regulations governing fur farms in China—farmers can house and slaughter animals however they see fit.” Two of the most important laws covering animals in China—the Environment Protection Law and the Wildlife Protection Law—only protect wildlife in the wild. Wild animals in captivity are treated as mere property, resources, or objects. China is one of the few countries in the world without any legal provisions for animal welfare and furthermore, there are no acts banning cruelty in the Chinese legal system.
Based on a survey of U.S. retail outlets many of the mass-marketed fur-trimmed garments carry the “Made in China” label. However, with our globalized market, China-originated fur pelts are disbursed through international auctions prior to being sewn in other countries. Therefore, the final fur product label could read “Made in Italy” or “Made in France,” making it impossible for consumers to know where the fur originates. Furthermore, manufacturing techniques such as dying often deceive shoppers into thinking they are buying fake fur.
Compounding this issue is the fact that Chinese fur farms deal not only in minks, foxes, and raccoon dogs, but domestic cats and dogs as well (some with their companion collars still affixed). The fur’s original species is indistinguishable to the typical end user. All the more reason to be relentless with the message to all who will listen that fur—even if it is “fake”—is a frivolous, unnecessary, and irresponsible purchase that supports animal cruelty in its worst form.
As I sit here in the middle of the couch, flanked by a peacefully resting dog to my left and cat to my right, the contrast in how some humans treat animals is a profound mystery to me. How is it that we are all of the same species (humans) and yet our values and, thus our capabilities, regarding treatment of animals can range from doting to mere tolerance to depraved indifference to barbarism? And I don’t just mean those who skin the animals. The people who buy the fur are just a culpable as those who hold the skinning knife.
Sometimes, information presents itself that is so stirring, so disturbing, so utterly inconceivable that even those of us paying attention to these issues are shaken to the core.
MAKING A KILLING FROM KILLING
Fur market, Chongfu, China.
A smiling young boy rides his bike over the pelts of Raccoon dog.
In China live Raccoon dogs are thrown to the ground, bludgeoned with metal rods, and skinned alive.
The skinned but agonizingly alive bloody bodies are discarded in a pile.
The Raccoon dogs will take up to 10 minutes to die.
I have long believed that China's problems are because of the CCP.
But, after seeing this image... I am not sure.
Between the sickening Yulin dog meat festivals, the Wet Markets selling bats and pangolins, to the brutal harvesting of sloth bear livers - and now this.... I have never seen a country whose people so brutally exploit other creatures.
Does the problem entirely lie with the CCP? Or is there something very wrong with the Chinese people themselves?
A Shocking Look Inside Chinese Fur Farms

When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms recently, they found that 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. When workers begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal’s leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard in order to make a clean cut. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals’ heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of other animals. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly.
Some of the animals’ hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they have been skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on a heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera.
Inside the Chinese fur farms which breed 'raccoon dogs' in tiny cages and skin them alive to make luxury coats sold in the West
Animal rights activists infiltrated two farms and market near Beijing
Each had more than 300 'raccoon dogs', distant relation of domestic pets
They secretly filmed after pretending to be potential buyers from Europe
Video shows grinning worker ripping fur up around live animal's head
Fur farming banned in Britain in 2000 but is largely unrestricted in China
This footage exposes the Chinese fur farms where a distant relation to dogs are skinned alive en-masse and turned into luxury coats sold in the West.
Animal rights activists smuggled secret cameras into farms and markets near Beijing, where they spent three weeks pretending to be potential business partners from Europe.
There they filmed the industrial scale of fur farming, a practice banned in Britain 14 years ago but largely unrestricted in many other countries including China.
