You’ve never seen anything like this before: Shocking new video footage captured by PETA Asia undercover investigators on Chinese fur farms reveals “who’s really paying the ultimate price” for fur, according to The Newsroom star Olivia Munn in PETA’s new video exposé.
The hard-hitting new video about fur farms in China, the world’s largest fur exporter, opens with never-before-seen footage of workers on a fur farm placing a dog’s head in a wire noose, restraining her, and genitally electrocuting her with a metal rod. Workers bludgeon raccoon dogs, cut off rabbits’ heads, and rip the fur off still-living animals’ bodies as they writhe in pain. Workers throw cages crammed with dogs and cats—many of whom are still wearing the collars placed on them by their loving families—to the ground, shattering the animals’ bones. And often, fur from China is mislabeled as fur from another species so that consumers cannot be confident that they know whose fur they are really wearing.
“This new footage is one of the most heartbreaking things I’ve ever seen before,” says Munn, who is of Chinese descent. “Anyone who wears fur or is even thinking about wearing fur should watch PETA’s video. It shows exactly where—and who—that coat or that ‘little bit’ of trim came from.”
Munn, who appeared in PETA’s “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, is part of a long list of celebrities — including Charlize Theron, Eva Mendes, Penélope Cruz, Tim Gunn, Lea Michele, Pink, and Taraji P. Henson — who have teamed up with PETA to speak out against fur.
