This is an animal dying on a fur farm in China. It grew up in a barren cage the size of a newspaper, living off meat processing waste deemed unfit even for pet food production. When it reached adult size, it was yanked out of the cage and received a couple of blows to the head, after which it was hung upside down & slowly skinned alive. After the fur was pulled off over its head, the agonizing body was thrown onto a pile of carcasses, where it expired in the most horrible way you can (or should I say, can’t) imagine.
Besides bludgeoning, the killing methods on fur farms include gassing, electrocution, poisoning with strychnine, or breaking the animals’ necks. Most of these methods don’t exclude the possibility of the animal regaining consciousness while its fur is being… removed.
This is the true cost of a “fabulous”, “glamorous” fur coat or collar, not the amount of money on the price tag.
Smash the face of every piece of shit fur industry supporter out there.
People think I am lying when I say animals survive the “killing” process frequently. I’m guessing that the videographer didn’t have to wait a long time for this shot.
New research has shown that muesli-style foods can be dangerous for rabbits’ health and wellbeing and should not be fed If you currently feed a muesli-type food you should gradually transfer your pets onto a hay and nugget/pellet based feeding plan over a period of between 14-28 days, by gradually reducing the amount of muesli and increasing the proportion of nuggets until they have completely replaced the mix. Remember that good quality hay and/or grass should make up the majority of your rabbit’s diet and should be available at all times. Please talk to your vet for more information.
Why are muesli-style foods potentially so dangerous?
Recent research* conducted by the University of Edinburgh has shown that feeding muesli, with or without hay, is associated with abnormalities that can lead to painful dental and digestive problems that require veterinary treatment, like
- Lower Gut motility, which can put rabbits at a high risk of gut stasis, a condition which is often fatal
- Eating less hay, which can lead to abnormal growth of teeth that could develop into painful dental disease. Lower hay consumption also results in reduction in water intake, which in turn can lead to urinary tract stones or sludge.
- Not eating all their caecotrophs, meaning they may not get all the nutrition they need and uneaten caecotrophs may become matted in rabbits’ fur, putting them at risk of dermatitis and fly strike
- Selective feeding (where rabbits pick out their favourite pieces rather than eating the whole portion), which can lead to an imbalanced diet lacking in vital vitamins and minerals.
- The research has also shown that eating muesli-style foods without hay causes rabbits to become overweight or obese, which can also lead to health problems.
Every single minute of every single day, there are calves being taken from their mothers so humans can consume their milk. Both mother and calf suffer as a result.
Linda Rapp Nelson: I was having a discussion with a friend, and said that diary cows and laying hens had it the worst. I’ve been thinking about this, and though female dairy cows have to endure longer, and there are even fewer laws governing the slaughter of laying hens than other animals most call food, I don’t have the right to suggest I know what is worst. I cannot fathom the terror, the physical pain, the boredom, and the loss that each individual animal among the billions and billions raised for our greed endure. I wonder if they long for the love they have never had, or if they go to a deep, dark place of madness. I have only a shadow of an understanding of what it would be like to live their lives and die their deaths, but that shadow horrifies me.
@_animalplace for the weekend, such an amazing place full of hard working and dedicated people.
there are not many slices left for humans to cut
