ANIMALS being raised in China's Hebei province to supply fur for clothing are being skinned alive, a Swiss animal protection group said today. The group (PSA) said it had six hours of video film and 550 photographs taken by local activists showing foxes, wild dogs or martens being clubbed or thrown to the ground to knock them unconscious, thereby avoiding damage to their pelts.

Most of the animals are just stunned and often recover consciousness while they are being skinned, leaving them in agony for up to ten minutes before they die, PSA said in a statement.

"This inconceivable horror exceeds anything we knew so far on the way animals are killed in the west," it added.

Many cheap furs on sale in Europe, or used as linings for hoods and collars, come from China, according to the group.

It said it wanted every consumer to understand "how these animals lived and how they met their end".

More than 1.5 million foxes, and about as many martens, mink, rabbits, dogs and cats are raised in China every year for their fur, according to PSA.

The animal protection group asked the Swiss government last year to ban imports of dog and cat fur from China.

Nous avec un pote, on avait une solutions radicale!!A chaque fois qu'on voyait une femme avec un manteau de fourrure, on la traitait de criminelle, on lui foutait la honte devant tout le monde.On la traitait vraiment des pires insultes en public. Je peux te dire que la personne, elle a l'air vraiment con.Quand on touche l'ego d'un humain, en particulier en lui foutant la  honte en public, tout d'un coup, il a un cerveau, il commence à se poser des questions ou du moins, il n'a pas envie que ça se reproduise car il est  trop fier de son image...Les chinois, on peut rien faire. Leur business rapporte trop de blé, y compris à l'état, donc ils n'arrêteront pas. Par contre, si tout le monde arrête d'acheter ces merdes, ils arrêteront car ça ne rapportera plus rien.
