In stews, as pets or adorning shop windows, rabbits are ubiquitous as millions of Chinese mark the Lunar New Year, hoping for a more tranquil time ahead as the old Year of the Tiger roars its last.

and for those rabbits and other animals suffering on Chinese fur farms, today is a day like any other.!

@PETA :

*** These gentle animals spend nearly their entire lives crammed in filthy wire cages that are so small the animals are often unable to move more than a few tiny steps. They are born and raised to die at the hands of workers who kill them using methods — such as neck-breaking, suffocation, poisoning, and electrocution — that keep the rabbits' skin intact so that it can be sold. The skin of rabbits who are not fortunate enough to die instantly is often ripped from their bodies while they are still conscious

 

Why are these animals subjected to such cruelty and abuse? It's all done in the name of fashion!

Millions of individual animals are killed each year for the clothing industry — and more than half the fur used in the U.S. comes from China. PETA is convincing leading retailers and designers around the world to eliminate fur and exotic-animal skins from their clothing lines, and top designers — including Stella McCartney, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Liz Claiborne — are setting fashion trends without using any skins.

Even though she knows about the suffering that's behind every fur-trimmed coat, hat, and bag, Donna Karan continues to use fur in her collections. Even footage like this has failed to convince her to remove fur from her clothing lines.

PETA is leading the fight to save animals through our eye-opening campaigns against retailers and designers — such as Donna Karan — who still use animal skins
