Last month the China Fur Commission(CFC) claimed that China adopted international practices such as electric shock and injection to slaughter fur animals, and said that the expose done by Swiss Animal Protection and East International was invented or exaggerated.

Their report and the photographs they gathered corroborate the findings of animals being skinned alive and beaten to death with sticks. If you’re fluent in Chinese, take a look at the article for yourself. No matter what language you speak, the following video speaks volumes.
