Leather Industry

 

Leather can be made from cows, pigs, goats, and sheep; exotic animals such as alligators, ostriches, and kangaroos; and even dogs and cats, who are slaughtered for their meat and skin in China, which exports their skins around the world.


Most leather comes from developing countries such as India and China, where animal welfare laws are either missing or not enforced.


In the U.S., several millions of cows and other animals who are killed used for their skin
suffer the horrors of factory farming severe crowding and lack as well as castration,
branding, tail-docking, and dehorning all without any painkillers.


Buying leather straight contribute to factory farms and slaughterhouses because skin is the most economically important byproduct of the animal protein industry. Leather is also no friend of the atmosphere, as it shares responsibility for all the environmental damage caused by the meat industry as well as the pollution caused by the toxins used in tanning.


Fur Industry


Whether it come from an animal on a hair ranch or one who was mesmerized in the wild, every fur coat, charm, and bit of trim caused an animal stunning suffering and took away a life.


Animals on fur farms spend their entire life controlled to restricted, soiled wire cages. Fur farmers use the cheapest and cruelest killing methods available, including suffocation, electrocution, gas, and poison.


More than half the fur in the U.S. comes from China, where millions of Dogs and Cats are bludgeoned, hanged, bled to death, and often skinned alive for their fur. Chinese fur is often deliberately mislabeled, so if you wear any fur, there’s no way of knowing for sure whose skin you’re in.


Animals who are Trapped In the Wild can suffer for days from blood loss, shock, dehydration, frostbite, gangrene, and attacks by predators. They may be caught in steel-jaw traps that slam down on their legs, often cutting to the bone; Conibear traps, which crush their necks with 90 pounds of pressure per square inch; or water-set traps, which leave beavers, muskrats, and other animals struggling for more than nine distressing minutes before drowning.
