In Their Position by sh4vo In Their Position by sh4vo
When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms recently, they found that many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a clean cut. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals' heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of those who have gone before them. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Some of the animals' hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera.

Before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cages and thrown to the ground; workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces, causing broken bones and convulsions but not always immediate death. Animals watch helplessly as workers make their way down the row. Put yourself in their position...

I'd call it poor standards and different ideology than cruelty.
Hard to judge someone without stepping in all the shoes.

Hi, I started an Animal Rights Club. Could I please add this to it? I would of course give you full credit and tell people to comment on your page. If you could allow me to do this it would be fantastic.

Even though many people say that the video was staged, the IFTF (Internation Fur Trade Federation) did not deny it, saying only that stopping fur trading with China will not improve conditions.
Fur is simply cruel, unecissary and selfish.

Amazing cause, amazing ad!
This is really good! Excellent ideia, brilliant.

Please, tell me, this is something I've been trying to find out how to do in PS for ages: how do you make the background gradually disappearing, becoming white or other colour, like you did here?

Again, lovely work. Well done! ;)

Thanks, glad you liked it.

To do that thing in PS, just click the 'Fill' button (it's the one with the paint bucket) and keep the left mouse button pressed, then choose the gradient option. Easy.

I got it, thanks a lot!
I knew it had to be something simple, just couldn't find it. Silly me..

Thank You!

I've seen this happening in many more places than China. It happens in countries like Ireland and the U.S., where animals are hung by their legs and cut open to be bled clean through holes in their throats. Rosters are beaten and pigs legs are broken simply so they cannot run. This problem is stacked along with all the other inhumanities animals must face for the fact that animals are not human.
