Shock & Awe

Postby bigh0rt » Sat Dec 09, 2006 3:44 pm

I fought my stomach's urges to stop this video several times. Chinese fur traders skinning animals alive, and the like... Interested to hear what some people around here have to say after watching it. Mods, if it's against forum regulations, apologies; but I'm pretty sure it's ok, despite its grotesque imagery...

Watch at your own risk -- seriously.

I thought this was going to be about the fact that we haven't seen him around here lately.

Thank h0rt but I think I'll pass. Skinning animals alive doesn't sound particularly appealing. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

why wouldn't they kill the animals before skinning them? isn't it harder to skin something that's squirming around than if it's limp and pliable?

Fur trade is disgusting truthfully.

I watched a video on it in college where half the class left and the majority of the rest was in tears.

its horrible...Killing animals for fur is not the problem which alot of people percieve.

These animals are kept in cages with bar floors that there feet slip through.. They literally have no space to move and they suffer the whole time.

Many animals literally go insane in these boxes. Then when they kill them the stick electrodes up their arse and then have them bite on another one.

Trapping is equally sick... I'm not a hunter but I see hunting a thousand times more humane then trapping.

truthfully its torturing animals all the way around.

I usually don't care about animals but that's terrible how they skin them alive.
