Please read the following information from PETA ,watch the video and share widely. Warning video contains graphic content showing animal cruelty which some people will find upsetting. Frankly if you don’t, you don’t have a heart.
“Wool is cruelly derived, no matter where it comes from.
Abuse on Australian wool farms is well documented. Now, a disturbing PETA Asia eyewitness investigation of the UK wool industry shows workers beating, stamping on, kicking, mutilating, and throwing around sheep there, too.
In PETA Asia’s investigation, an eyewitness saw cruelty in every one of the 25 English shearing sheds visited. Workers stood on the necks of panicked sheep and violently punched these gentle animals in the face and beat and jabbed them in the head with clippers.
Gaping wounds were sewed up without pain relief.
A farmer dragged two sheep who were unable to walk into a shed and left them without veterinary care. They eventually died. Several more died of a condition that a farmer called a “heart attack” during shearing.
PETA has already exposed rampant cruelty in shearing sheds in Australia, the US, and South America. PETA Asia’s investigation shows that the cruelty is global.”
Sheep in the UK Beaten, Stamped on, Cut, and Killed for Wool
Warning this video is extremely disturbing. I could not watch it more than a few seconds. If you view on You Tube you will need to sign in the prove your age.
Please share PETA Asia’s investigation with your friends and family and let everyone know how sheep suffer for wool.
If you wear wool please sign the pledge at the end of the web page above to stop doing so. By wearing wool you are complicit, as of course this perpetuates this awful cruelty to these gentle animals. Sheep are highly intelligent creatures, they are sentient beings and they suffer from abuse and cruelty as you would yourself.

On 22 August, Channel 4 News aired undercover footage recorded by animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia. The undercover investigation captured violent assaults on sheep bred for the British wool industry.
