Reports and video evidence of the cat and dog fur trade in China shows a trade that defies belief, such is the cruelty. You can see more information, and video footage at http://www.peta.org.uk/feat/dogcatfurUK.... although this is shocking stuff.
Dogs and cats are bludgeoned, hanged, tied with wire, crammed into cages which are thrown about, strangled with wire nooses and bled to death. All for a fur trim for trinkets. A recent undercover investigation shocked seasoned investigators who thought they'd seen it all.
I've rung the Embassy and this doesn't seem to be taken as a priority, so we need more people to do this. Will you help?
