First of all, this is not for the squeamish !! (I've warned you)
If you're one of those FUR admirer, a collectors or anythin' else, maybe it's time for you to know the behind the scene. Yeaah, i know. This is just another PETA campaign. At first i was like that too, thinking, well, it couldn't be that bad !
But boy ! After i got this from a friend, i bet you'll change your mind !
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.

And even though they have a campaign to Shed your skin! Donate unwanted furs to PETA. After i read it, i think their justified reasons are a little bit unreasonable =_=
- Your old furs could save an animal's life—and gain you a tax deduction!
In what manner do you think donating furs can save an animal's life ?! Also what is that bulls**t tax deduction you're trying to persuade people ?! I'm sure you can find a better reasons ?!
- Because of the vast number of furs that we receive, we donate many of them to homeless people who can't afford to buy their own coats—the only people who have any excuse to wear fur.
Coat is a coat, a fur coat is another thing. We can always donate a nice regular coat, doesn't have to be fur right ?!
Well maybe it's just me. I'm not against the campaign though. But i think they should make this campaign a little bit reasonable, with more pure and honest intention.
