Is Angora cruel?
The majority of Angora fur comes from Chinese farms, as China has no laws on animal cruelty the animals have most likely been treated as the videos show. some may have better conditions than others but how would you know…
Angora can be harvested humanely so the On-One/PlanetX stuff could be acceptable but it’s unlikely unfortunately…

Whilst cruelty to animals is abhorrent and ethical sourcing is to be supported I assume you will all also be relnquishing your aluminium bikes as the bauxite mining and their production cause untold damage to wildlife ,flora,fauna, water sources etc and also god forbid humans too.Posted 4 years ago

Why do they literally have to skin the wabbit alive?
To take as much fur as possible whilst keeping the animal alive to grow more……
The dog one is the worst I reckon that is actually skinning alive and apparently done as the skins are more easily removed when the flesh is warm….. If your squeamish do not search for that vid!Posted 4 years ago
Bob, it’s because it’s ickle fluffy wuffy bunnykins and products bought by educated middle class folks. Perfect targets for guilt revulsion tactics. Stuff made from equally abhorrent supply chains, including animal cruelty, child labour and more is available at all sorts of low cost shops, but their clientele either don’t know or don’t care.Posted 4 years agowhatnobeerMember
I wouldn’t trust anything that PETA put out. Not saying its not true, but I’d be looking to find more sources that anything they’ve sourced. Stretching the truth, mislabelling of videos and images, killing dogs and plain lying about it and their marketing and advertising tactics are all offensive to me.Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
We exploit other animals and cause them unspeakable (literally, natch) pain and agony to pursue our idealistic, airbrushed, lice and vermin free lifestyles.
We do the same to other people too, so we can have our cheap food, bikes, clothes and consumer goods.
That doesn’t get mentioned as much, obviously. It might upset the kiddies.
And we can’t have that.
Accept it and deal with your guilt, or try and change it.
Let’s face it, most of us are happy to inflict pain and suffering on other creatures, human and non-human, just so we can buy more pointless, mind-numbing shite that we don’t need.
Hats off to the vegans, at least they’re willing to acknowledge the issue.
And on that note, I’d like to wish everyone a Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Do you suggest we take the meat industry’s word instead?
lol yes of course more than you could trust the People for the Eating of Tasty Animals. I think they’ve admitted they’ve exaggerated things in the past and are trying to be more legit though.
I guess it all depends where the angora is sourced from though.
I assume you will all also be relnquishing your aluminium bikes as the bauxite mining and their production cause untold damage to wildlife ,flora,fauna, water sources etc and also god forbid humans too.
and not replacing mobile phones every year, buying tablets to browse stw and supporting the Coltan industry, whilst munching palm oil and monsanto neonicitinoid coated seed based food, or farmed salmon… the hypocrisy list is endless 😉Posted 4 years ago
My guess is, if the claim was that the hair is gently teased from the rabbit by delicate fairies, the truth would still be of shocking abuses.
Etc. Mix animal products with financial gain, and there is only going to be one loser. This seems to extrapolate to cheap electronics/consumer goods and ever-increasing demand and competition.Posted 4 years ago
