Animals are being robbed! But this duo won’t take it lying down. Watch as one loveable alligator and one feisty rabbit confront the fashion victims who stole their skins in “Stolen for Fashion,” featuring the voices of P!nk and Ricky Gervais.
Animals on fur farms are often killed with gas, electrocution, or poison, or their necks are broken. These methods are not 100 percent effective, and some animals “wake up” while being skinned. Snakes and lizards are often skinned alive because some people believe that live-flaying makes leather more flexible. In addition to causing the suffering and deaths of millions of animals each year, the production of wool, fur, and leather contributes to climate change, land devastation, pollution, and water contamination.

The character is coming to life with the addition of color, eyes, and skin.
This is one of the earliest versions of the alligator, with very little detail and no color.
