    Sign petition at www.stophurtinganimals.com

    Hey folks,

    StopHurtingAnimals.com is campaigning to gather 1 million signatures for a petition to stop animal cruelty and shut down chinese fur farms.

    Every year, over two million dogs, cats and other small animals are slaughtered for their fur.

    Only takes 5 seconds of your time:
    <snip></snip>

    Add your voice; sign the petition and spread the word to everyone you know.

    Let's see if we can get a few thousand Sitepoint members on the list!

    Cheers,
    A

    That video was very disturbing. I'd seen another before where a mink was skinned alive, and just after the skin was removed, it blinked. Horrific. The Chinese practice of milking bears for their bile is truly disgusting, as is the removal of shark fins. The suffering is unimaginable.

    I really can't see the Chinese authorities paying much attention to an online petition, and I hope they do, but unfortunately given their track record with human rights, I doubt they'll bat an eyelid at this. Best of luck with it though.

    A culture is not going to be changed with signatures. Only the boycott of the particular products that are made from this "harvesting" will have some effect.

    Is this appropriate for general chat? We all know its bad but do I need to watch a video like that?

    I will leave it open for now but if anyone else finds it a little disturbing I will remove it.

    Sorry to be the done to end this...but that video is f***ing disgusting. I do not want to see that on here. I closed it after they threw the animals on the ground.
