Yearly Pet Holocaust Highlights Asian Culture and Mentality

Yearly Pet Holocaust Highlights Asian Mentality

Hundreds of tons of cat and dog fur smuggled into Europe every year.

The culture-wrecking "global economy" is encouraging a cruel trade in cat and dog skins. Millions of cats and dogs are killed in the Far East each year and much of this ends up as hats, coats and even children's toys in European shops.

It is currently legal to import and sell the products which are usually passed off as fox, wolf and rabbit. World Trade Organisation rules prevent the introduction of a ban on animal welfare grounds.

The need to maintain the quality of the fur means that the killing of these animals is extremely cruel. Methods used include gassing, neck breaking, anal electrocution and drowning.

There seems to be no feeling at all among Asians for the feelings of animals. To them an animal is simply an object. Cats intended to be eaten are treated in an almost unbelievably inhumane manner. They are sold already skinned but still alive to keep the meat fresh (pictured). And there is the Asian gourmet's peculiar notion that the more painful a death the animal suffers, the more tender and tasty is the meat.
