by , 05/24/13   filed under: Animal Cruelty

Got fur? Chances are the hapless critter was raised and slaughtered on a fur farm in China, where cheap labor and lax or nonexistent regulations translate into fatter profit margins. On an undercover tour of facilities in the Hebei Province, investigators from Swiss Animal Protection, the largest animal-rights group in Switzerland, found horrors “beyond [their] worst imaginings.” “Conditions on Chinese fur farms make a mockery of the most elementary animal welfare standards,” they said. “In their lives and their unspeakable deaths, these animals have been denied even the simplest acts of kindness.” Above, the Chinese fur trade exposed in 60 seconds. (We can’t unsee this bloodcurdling gif, either.)
