Warning this video contains images that some viewers may find disturbing!!! Video courtesy of Swiss Animal Protection www.animal-protection.net Chinese Customs statistics indicate a net volume of fur imports and exports for 2003 of US7.6 million, up 42.5% from 2002. More than 95% of fur clothing produced in China is sold to overseas markets, with 80% of fur exports from Hong Kong destined for Europe, the USA and Japan. The countrys expanding product range includes pelts, full coats, fur accessories, such as scarves and hats etc., toys, garment trimmings and even furniture. A random market survey in boutiques and department stores in Switzerland and London discovered fur garments labelled Made in China among top fashion brands. A significant number of animals remain fully conscious during this process. Supremely helpless, they struggle and try to fight back to the very end. Even after their skin has been stripped off breathing, heart beat, directional body and eyelid movements were evident for 5 to 10 minutes.
