As a supporter of animal rights I have come across some shocking instances of cruelty but what follows turned my stomach at the very thought of the sheer cruelty involved. How the hell can any sane rational person commit such an atrocity against a living feeling sentient creature is beyond my ability to comprehend. The pain suffered by these defenceless animals is unthinkable.
Bleeding bunnies scream in pain as they are plucked alive for hats, socks, scarves and jumpers.
A PETA Asia investigation into angora farms in China – the world’s top producer of angora wool – has revealed shockingly cruel treatment of rabbits.

Warning this film is shocking I could not watch for more than a moment or so, the screams from these poor rabbits is unbearable to hear.
Please please read the following information included in the link below and say no to angora wool and join the campaign against this cruel and violent industry.
How can any one be so cruel. Rabbits are stoic creatures, as pry animals they have evolved to hide their pain, it is only when pain is extreme that a rabbit will scream.
Please spread this far and wide and do not buy angora products particularly those from China.
Ninety per cent of the world’s angora comes from China where there are no animal welfare laws, no penalties for the abuse of animals on farms and no standards to regulate the treatment of the animals.
Similar atrocities would likely take place in any country where there are no laws to prevent such abuse and cruelty. Did you know that in seventeenth century Ireland wool was once plucked from live sheep rather than shearing. The first legislation directly against animal cruelty in the English speaking world was a bill passed in Ireland in 1635 that prohibited the unimaginable cruelty of pulling wool off sheep and attaching ploughs to horses tails. This bill was the first known animal rights law in history:
There is something deeply wrong psychologically with anyone who callously harms any animal in such an horrific way . To be so unmoved by the screams of an obviously sentient being is disturbing. The mentality shocking, the kind of mentality of the individuals who perpetrate cruelty towards their own species, such as those who ran concentration camps and those who torture people. There is no place in any ethically progressive society for people who can so readily inflict such harm. Such people need to be tightly controlled and until China introduces laws to protect animals, sadly such inhumane behaviour will continue.
These poor animals need our help. Do not buy angora. Ask friends and family not to buy angora. Please share this information as much as possible, on and off-line. If you see angora being sold anywhere please complain.
