A friend told me about this article raising that fake Ugg Boots from China are made out of dog leather and fur. I remember a program on TV from a few years back, that showed how cats are being slaughtered brutally for leather and fur. This TV show goes back at least 10 years but the sight of these caged cats waiting for their turn is still haunting me.
Nowadays the use of dogs is apparently growing more popular.
Here is the full article:
Radio Australia:Connect Asia:Storyogs 'skinned alive' for fake ugg boots
In the article is an audio file that's pretty graphic. I wouldn't click on that if I weren't absolutely sure that I could stomach it. I knew what it was and did not listen to it. It's the screaming of a dog skinned alive. I'm haunted only by the thought of it
DON'T BUY CHEAP LEATHER OR FUR PRODUCTS. And if you absolutely have to ... at least make sure it's not from China
