PETA wants consumers to know that animals trapped for fur suffer excruciating pain before their chests are stomped on or their necks are broken by trappers. On fur farms, animals spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy cages before they are killed by poisoning, anal electrocution, or neck-breaking. In China--now the world's leading fur exporter--animals, including cats and dogs, are sometimes skinned alive.
"Compassion is a big turn-on, but fur-wearers leave me cold," says valentine vixen and PETA member Nadia Elmuanier. "By showing some of our skin, we hope to save animals' skins."
