Okay...this is basically off topic. I've read about this before, and just ran across a Facebook group about it.
So there are truly sick and twisted individuals in China (be careful not to get angry at the whole country, although it's very tempting) who SKIN ANIMALS ALIVE. Dogs and cats. Every day. For their damn fur. Because of money. And, apparently, because they get off on torturing living beings?
A group called Animal Saviors is trying to raise awareness about it. Check it out. Please sign the petition. Please forward it.
You may not want to watch the video. I didn't and won't. But I will remember. This is the kind of thing that brings murderous thoughts rising through me in a bright red haze. Very, very hard to extend compassion to the people who do (RIGHT NOW! They are doing it right now.) such things.
Good god. I need to go throw up, cry, scream, or something now.
I may just have to write about it. Using my voice is sometimes the best (only?) tool I have.
