Unhappy Animal Skinning Video - Please do not buy fur...

The link below is a video of the process of skinning an animal.

You may think it's no big deal if the animal is already dead.
But no, they skin them alive

Please help spread the message to save these poor animals. They deserve the right to live.

The video is very graphic.
However, Racoons are vermin and do spread disease.

They should find more pain-free ways to exterminate their animals. It should be quick for the poor animal; being banged on the ground is not very efficient is it?

yes..tt was what i thought too..
I thought the racoon was dead after being slammed on the ground but it was not
it was only unconscious

The raccoon was still alive after skinning and it looks really sad..I pray people will really ban fur everywhere soon

i am sorry i can not watch the video. i have a very weak consitution when it comes to things like this.

i do not understand what kind of monster would skin a living animal, or even why?

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

I won't watch the video because I don't wear fur anyways, for a much less serious reason: Fur is FUGLY. FUGLY. I don't understand why anybody who doesn't live off the land up north, where it's actually practical to wear fur, would want to.

Oh, and while I'm here let me share another one of Rebecca's pet peeves with you: anti-fur activists who wear *fake* fur. I don't care if it's fake. If there is the slightest possibility that anybody might look at it and think that it's real, then you're hurting your own cause.

I don't wear fur, but I think others should be able to be free to wear what they want without being criticized. I do know people who wear furs, and minks and they are most likely not aware of the animal cruelty. However, I don't feel they are evil at all. Bash me if you wan't, but that's my opinion.

I didn't know Raccoon was a type of fur in demand A while back, a class of mine took a field trip to northern Ontario and got to see animal traps, spoke with a fur trader and even saw a video of how he extracted a beaver pelt. I agree it can be cruel, especially with some traps where animals can chew off their own limbs in order to escape and other traps which don't kill the animal, just crush it as it dies slowly. Still, there are organisations of fur traders now which try to ensure that humane traps are used and fur is still big business and provides a living for many people. I don't have any because it's impractical, but I own lots of leather and suede and eat lots of types of meat which I'm sure was 'obtained' cruelly. Doesn't bother me I guess

Don't want to watch the movie, but is there a "practical" reason for skinning the animal alive?

It's more that they want to kill or incapacitate the animal in a way that is cheap (bullets cost money, ya know) and doesn't damage the skin - which lowers its value. Sadly, those methods are more effective for saving the "value" of the fur than saving the animal from suffering.

Hey harloo - I think YOUR skin would make a nice hat. Whadya say?

I'm sorry, but I don't think vanity is sufficient to justify such cruelty.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

<long-winded rant>
i understand that some people name feel "innocent" because they wear fur but do not know the cruelty involved in skinning an animal alive. i also understand bullshit when i hear it, and that is bullshit.

any adult of below average intelligence or higher, understands what skin is and what purpose it serves. No adult of below average intelligence can expect 1- an animal to live without its skin, 2- an animal raised and killed only for its skin to be a happy and well treated animal, 3- the skinning of a recently dead animal to be a pleasant experience, and/or 4- the skinning of a living animal to be anything short of sicking cruelty.

no, adults who wear fur are not "informed", instead it is a deliberate and personal choice to refused to 1- know what really happens and/or 2- CARE what really happens. in my book willfully ignorance about this level of inhumane abuse, while willfully FINANCIALLY SUPPORTING IT (that is paying for animal furs), is not something deserves any level of leniency. indeed these self gratifying circles of ignorance are just as vile as the act of skinning animal alive.</long-winded rant>

in short: people who wear fur and claim to not know, don't want to know because they are selfish little shits, and care more about (tacky, heartless) fashion than actually giving half a fuck, and i think they are just as bad as if they skinned the animals alive themselves.
