Leather can be made from cows, pigs, goats, and sheep; exotic animals such as alligators, ostriches, and kangaroos; and even dogs and cats, who are slaughtered for their meat and skin in China, which exports their skins around the world. Because leather is normally not labeled, you never really know where (or whom) it came from.
Watch the video that shows the shocking reality of the Chinese fur trade, in which animals are beaten, have their heads stomped on, and are skinned alive. Visit PETA.org/ChinaFur to learn how you can help stop this cruelty.
