Dear PEOPLES BARK NEWS READER,
Filth-covered walls. Blood-stained floors. Workers grabbing dog after dog with metal pincers and bashing them over the head with a wooden pole.
A PETA Asia investigator visited leather-processing plants in China and documented the task of turning dogs’ skin into work gloves, women’s dress gloves, and other items–products that are exported throughout the world and sold to unsuspecting customers.
For people buying leather clothing, there’s no easy way to tell whose skin they’re really in.
Such powerful investigations into the global skins trade are making a difference for animals. Millions of people watched this footage and, as a result, many pledged not to purchase or wear leather ever again.
PETA members help expose this kind of cruelty and fuel our campaigns to shrink the demand for cruel fashions that are made–literally–off the backs of animals.
Please make a gift today and stand up to the cruelty of the global skins trade. (Even just $5 makes a difference.)
Ingrid E. Newkirk
